done to help wildlife can be considered wildlife
management. Scientific knowledge and technical
skills can be used to assess, protect, conserve,
enhance, create, or limit wildlife habitat.
Another important component is the implementation of
laws and regulations that govern the use of wildlife
habitat and the species, kinds, and amounts that can
be harvested. There are many different
management techniques used to increase, maintain, or
limit wildlife habitat and populations.
Management of wildlife is important because it
provides us with beauty, recreation, economic
opportunities, and maintains our quality of life by
sustaining healthy functional ecosystems.
Management is also important in reducing the
conflict among species, most importantly humans.
