New Educational Film Discusses Wildlife Fertility Control

"An Overview of Wildlife Fertility Control" is now available for viewing
MEDIA, Pa. - May 18, 2021 - PRLog -- Over the last 20 years, there has been an exponential increase in human-wildlife conflicts because human populations are expanding. As they expand, they are encroaching on wildlife habitats. Traditional methods to resolve such conflicts have focused primarily on lethal management including culling, trapping, and toxicants. Today, the use of lethal methods is often intensely debated. In many situations, lethal methods may be logistically unfeasible, illegal, socially and/or politically unacceptable, and in the long-term, ineffective.

In the late 20th century, wildlife fertility control arose as a field of study in human-wildlife conflict mitigation. To educate the public about the field and create connections between wildlife managers, researchers, and advocates, The Botstiber Institute for Wildlife Fertility Control (BIWFC) has produced a unique educational film titled "An Overview of Wildlife Fertility Control."

This groundbreaking film, which took nearly two years to complete, presents a clear, concise, and informative overview of the field covering ongoing research and projects in the United States related to wildlife fertility control. The film includes numerous interviews with experts in the field in addition to beautiful footage of free-roaming horses, burros, white-tailed deer, prairie dogs, elephants, and more.

Recent viewers of "An Overview of Wildlife Fertility Control" have called it, "an excellent and informative introduction to wildlife fertility control;" "really useful for knowledge sharing;" and "a well-done presentation addressing some of the important issues of wildlife population control." The film runs 15 minutes in length and is free to view on the BIWFC website (

The Botstiber Institute for Wildlife Fertility Control is a non-profit organization, headquartered in Media, PA, which aims to advance the use of effective, sustainable fertility control methods to mitigate human-wildlife conflicts and promote coexistence worldwide. Established in 2016 as a partnership between The Dietrich W. Botstiber Foundation and The Humane Society of the United States. The BIWFC marks its fifth anniversary this year.
