TWS Panel Discussion
ROOM: RSCC, D1
Studies in conservation biology have demonstrated the vast impacts of man-made barriers, climate change, and inconsistent land management patterns on wildlife habitats. Habitat fragmentation, pollution, and wildlife mortality from human activities have led to disruptions in genetic diversity and population dynamics, leading to the endangerment of a variety of animal species. However, many of these concerns can be addressed at least partially through management and engineering solutions implementable by state and federal agencies. In order to prioritize and fund these solutions, panelists will argue that new policy and incentives are required on the local, state, and national level.
