The mission of the Extension Wildlife Program in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Clemson University is to provide the latest research-based information to a wide range of clientele to ensure wise use and sustainable management of wildlife and their habitats across a diverse landscape. Program emphasis areas include wildlife conservation in managed systems (forestry and agricultural production), mitigation of human-wildlife conflicts through wildlife damage management techniques, maintenance and enhancement of biodiversity in managed landscapes, and urban wildlife management. Applied research is also a component of the Extension Wildlife Program that addresses current and future wildlife conservation needs of clientele. Clientele include private landowners, natural resource professionals, government officials, public policy makers, and the general public. Programs are delivered using web-based applications, satellite and closed-circuit broadcasts, workshops, courses, and other multi-media outlets. The Extension Wildlife Program also partners with federal, state, and non-government conservation agencies and organizations to delivery educational programs to clientele.

We believe that an understanding of ecological relationships and natural resource management is critical to the economic, biologic and aesthetic well-being of the people of South Carolina.

Thus, we provide information and education that helps people to:

  • enhance wildlife resources;
  • wisely use wildlife resources so that they are sustainable over time;
  • manage habitat for wildlife;
  • manage damaging or nuisance interactions between people and wildlife.

This website will give you an overview of the programs, publications, and partnerships we use to achieve our mission.
