Topic: Virtual Field Trip: Non-leathal Beaver Conflict Resolution
In 2019, the Clark Fork Coalition, National Wildlife Federation, and Defenders of Wildlife started a pilot beaver- conflict resolution project. Our goals? To address landowner concerns and mitigate damage through nonlethal methods and increased tolerance.
In this webinar, you’ll see videos and photography from the field, showing you diverse approaches to mitigate damage and just how these nonlethal techniques are working. We’ll be joined by a panel of experts in the field, including Mike Callahan, a national beaver expert, who has engineered and installed over 1500 successful non-lethal structures. Through panel discussion and live Q&A, you will have the chance to dig deeper into what makes projects like these successful.
This collaborative project aims to sustain healthy watersheds in Montana by providing resources and trainings to help landowners and local governments reduce human-beaver conflicts. This NWF blog highlights some of the work featured in our webinar.
