Iowa Trapping Matters Workshop 

Hosted by:  Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and Iowa DNR

THESE PROJECTS HAVE BEEN SUPPORTED by Wildlife Restoration Funds, through grants administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program:  Partnering to fund conservation and connect people with nature.

Many wildlife professionals shy away from trapping-related discussions, because trapping is considered to be a controversial wildlife management technique. Yet, it is essential that wildlife professionals understand the diverse ways that regulated trapping provides environmental & social benefits. This workshop will help participants understand & better communicate the benefits of regulated trapping to wildlife management. Participants will leave with scientifically sound information & be trained in skills that will make them effective communicators on this subject.
