Wildlife Management in the Next New World...

What's new?

Four hundred years ago, European settlers arrived in Virginia. The Old World met the New World and the landscape was permanently altered. Today, people and wildlife struggle to live in harmony. Conflicting demands on resources, natural and otherwise, are on the rise.

Wildlife agencies across the country work diligently to achieve equilibrium, but outside influences threaten that balance each and every day.

How will we manage interactions between wildlife and society in the Next New World and beyond?

Just a few of the challenging issues facing wildlife agencies in the Next New World include: wildlife diseases, changing cultural attitudes, wildlife education, invasive species, and natural disaster response.

These issues and many others will be addressed during the SEAFWA 2006 conference (Sunday, November 5 - Wednesday, November 8, 2006) in Norfolk, Virginia.
