Don Molde's presentation on Wildlife Management in Nevada is now available for you to watch on our YouTube channel! January's virtual member meeting took an in-depth look at various wildlife conservation issues that Nevada is currently facing. Watch the video to learn more about the history of wildlife management, the funding behind it, how hunting fits into conservation, and wildlife population trends in Nevada.
This webinar was made into two parts.
Don wanted to add a couple comments regarding a question he received at the end of his presentation. Don said he gave an incomplete answer to the question, “What can a person do to become more involved with wildlife management?”. His only comment was that attending meetings of the Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners was generally unproductive for members of the general public who might be concerned about some of the topics covered in the presentation (e.g., non-target trapping victims, Nevada’s black bear hunt, predator control).
Don wanted to let viewers know that there are many organizations working on better wildlife management that are worthy of membership and support. LAS itself keeps a close eye on local and national birding issues. Project Coyote is the premier national advocacy group for those interested in the welfare and treatment of coyotes. Mountain Lion Foundation is a 35-year-old advocacy group for mountain lions around the West. WildEarth Guardians and Humane Society of the U.S. both have strong carnivore advocacy programs. Western Watersheds Projects in Idaho is active in opposing predator persecution in the West. Center for Biological Diversity, with a state representative in Nevada, is highly active in issues benefitting wildlife and its habitat.
