Human-Wildlife Conflict Committee

On Wednesday, November 4, the Lake Erie Allegheny Partnership for Biodiversity Human-Wildlife Conflict Committee will hold its inaugural meeting. The species selected as the primary focus for this Committee and their champions are:

  • Deer (Cathi Lehn, Biodiversity Alliance)
  • Raccoon (Karen Adair, The Nature Conservancy)
  • Cowbird (David Kriska, The Cleveland Museum of Natural History)
The initial efforts of this committee will focus on examining current policies and procedures within our own organizations and developing recommendations for action items. We plan to have a structured format to the meeting and will ask one or two individuals to outline for each species what the issues are followed by discussion. We ask that all attendees do their homework prior to the meeting and be prepared to share with the group summaries of how their organizations are currently addressing issues with deer, raccoon and cowbirds and what challenges they face. LEAP members are encouraged to submit summaries of their current policies relating to these three species prior to the meeting. The Co-Chairs will come prepared with sample language of goals and action items.
