ENEP 413 - Wildlife Policy and Society

Credit(s): 3
Component: Lecture
This course currently provides an introduction to policy issues that relate to wildlife management and natural resources.  Students spend the first half of the semester understanding how cultural and socio-economic backgrounds and history affect values relationships to the land and wildlife.  Students also gain understanding and awareness of how to incorporate socio-demographic-economic value differences in addressing stakeholder concerns and wildlife policy development.  The second half of the semester details the historical creation and oversight of policies related to federal agencies toward wildlife and wildlife habitat in the face of a growing and changing society. While the second half provides an overview of many policies, it also uses lengthier case studies to detail the interaction of human dimensions with wildlife conservation. Because wildlife and fisheries management in the 21st century has as much to do with human dimensions, economics and equity, social politics, and environmental policy, as it does ecology principles; this course is designed to prepare students to succeed as wildlife and natural resource professionals.
