Protecting our national parks from pests and weeds

Invasive species (weeds and pest animals) represent one of the greatest threats to biodiversity around the world. They also cause financial losses to agriculture and other industries, and damage areas of cultural significance. Managing the impacts of pests is therefore an issue of great importance for the managers of all land tenures. The problem requires […]

Restraint and handling of pest animals used in research

Research involving pest animals may require the live capture, restraint and handling of individual animals. Wild animals may try to avoid capture, handling and restraint during which they are capable of inflicting damage to themselves and their potential captors. When physical contact is necessary, the safety of animals and operators should be the primary consideration. […]
