About the Event
Mammal Trapping plays an important role in today’s societies. While trapping is part of land-based lifestyles, it is also used in wildlife management and conservation programs to monitor and control wildlife populations, agricultural landscapes to remove animals which cause significant damages to crops and livestock, and in research to better understand the ecological needs of a species.
However, the way with which trapping is being carried out and its impact on mammal populations are a source of societal concerns. Furthermore, recent scientific investigations and reviews have shown that current animal trapping devices and standards fail to meet state-of-the-art trapping technology. (Updating the AIHTS Trapping Standards to Improve Animal Welfare and Capture Efficiency and Selectivity)
Video Summit aims to:
1. Review animal welfare science in mammal trapping;
2. Review the role of mammal trapping in wildlife conservation and management programmes; and
3. Discuss and develop state-of-the-art international mammal trapping standards to properly address animal welfare, and trapping efficiency and selectivity.
