The Human/Wildlife Conflicts Committee was established by the President to be comprised of members from the Board as appointed by the President and affirmed by the Board. The committee meets annually at the WAFWA summer and mid-winter meetings. The committee’s approved Statement of Purpose:
“To identify the highest priority human/wildlife conflict issues and pool information regarding successful techniques to address them; to identify those wildlife damage and human/wildlife conflict issues where effective management techniques are lacking, and make recommendations to member agencies for the development of new alternatives, and to facilitate the exchange of information regarding human/wildlife conflict among the western states and provinces”.
The Committee will periodically host trainings and workshops as sanctioned by WAFWA, but there is no regular schedule for these events. The last workshop was a “Wildlife Human Attack Response Team” training hosted by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and held April 29-May 3, 2019 in Girdwood, AK.
