We appreciate your interest in our referral book. We continue to provide a practical and dependable solution to human and wild animal conflicts. The members listed in this handbook can provide assistance in exclusion, habitat modification as a deterrent, population reduction and maintenance, or zero tolerance management. Additionally, we are committed to educating the public to better understand wild animal behavior and conflict resolution processes.
Due to the variety of species and problems we encounter, you may have to contact more than one individual to resolve a specific problem. This service is not part of any state or federal governmental program; therefore the individuals are a private party entity and they may assess a fee for their services.
Your questions and comments are welcomed and we thank you for your continued support.
