More than in any other setting, humans interact with wildlife in the world's rapidly expanding urban environments. This reality necessitates that we increase our understanding of urban growth on wildlife populations and develop sustainable solutions to manage conflict for the benefit of both humans and animals.

The International Urban Wildlife Conference will focus on disseminating the latest research and information on the ecology and management of urban wildlife, reducing human-wildlife conflict, planning wildlife-friendly cities, and strategies for effective outreach and education. Conference proceedings will include contributions from leading researchers, practitioners, and students from the United States and around the world.

Conference facts

  • Over 300 attendees expected, from across the United States and the world
  • Attendees will include researchers, planners, and practitioners from state and federal agencies, universities, municipal and county governments, architects, urban planners, and private organizations
  • Initially organized in 1986 by Lowell Adams as the National Symposium on Urban Wildlife, the conference has been held under various titles and sponsors over the years, but its rich 30-year history reflects the growing interest and relevance of wildlife in urban areas
