MADISON — With the arrival of The Wildlife Society’s conference starting Oct. 5 in Milwaukee, wildlife management professionals from Wisconsin and North America will convene to discuss an issue that extends far beyond Wisconsin borders, wolves.

The session titled, Brave New World: Conservation landscapes of recovered wolves, aims to pull together ideas and research results from experts in the U.S. and Europe to inform wolf management policies. The recent delisting of wolves as an endangered species has been marked as a conservation success, but it brings with it a new dynamic of population management for both wildlife and people.

“The wolf session will be a great opportunity for DNR staff to collaborate and share ideas on wolf management with others who are also dealing with the complex issue,” said Adrian Wydeven, wildlife biologist. “We’re looking forward to hearing what other agencies are doing.”

Following the opening of the main wolf session, Wydeven will give a presentation on wolf conservation efforts from then and now. Wydeven’s presentation is part of a series of other wolf related talks covering a wide-range of themes including: effects of wolf predation, wolf harvests and the coexistence of wolves and people.

The wolf plenary session begins Oct. 8, three days after the start of The Wildlife Society annual conference. The wolf sessions also tie into the overall theme of this year’s conference promoting science communications, and researcher’s involvement in communicating their work with the public.
