Preventing wildlife disease outbreaks is a priority for natural resource agencies, and management decisions can be urgent, especially in epidemic circumstances. With the emergence of SARS-CoV-2, wildlife agencies were concerned whether their activities might increase the risk of viral transmission from humans to North American bats, but they had a limited amount of time in which to make decisions. In a study in the July issue of The Wildlife Professional, researchers describe how decision analysis can provide a powerful framework to navigate evolving management issues.
Other articles look at prairie grouse and wind energy, remotely triggered door and real-time monitoring for bear cage traps, and more.
