Extension: Wildlife

Most people care about wildlife to some degree and want to make sure wildlife and the habitat they require are healthy and productive. Others want to manage their property to attract more wildlife for hunting or viewing and enjoyment.

Many people simply want to be good stewards of their property and know they are doing what they can to ensure a healthy environment, which includes caring for plant and animal communities.

However, it is also important to have a plan for dealing with problems associated with wildlife, such as home and property damage.

The UT Extension wildlife program strives to make information on these topics and more available for everyone.
