Resolve Wildlife Conflicts Over the Phone- 1 hr
This presentation demonstrates how timely and properly diagnosed phone advice can help resolve caller’s wildlife dilemmas in a matter of minutes-and prevent many wild animals from becoming orphaned and filling your facility to capacity. Many people think wildlife confict calls need to be referred to ‘nuisance wildlife control operators,’ with the result all too often being the death of the parent(s) and orphaning of the young. We show how the majority of those ‘nuisance’ calls can be resolved with some simple step-by-step advice, which preserves the family unit but also resolves the caller’s problem-and teaches them how to coexist with wildlife in the process.
