Teresa Hill

A Typology of Mississippi Licensed Furbearer Trappers

There is a need to attract more people into trapping in order to help mitigate animal-induced damage to flora and fauna. Teresa B. Hill, a senior in the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Aquaculture, is studying participation in furbearer trapping programs implemented to manage human-wildlife conflicts. She is trying to determine if trapper population is a homogenous group or if there is heterogeneity in order to assist management agencies in developing strategies to attract/retain participants in trapping. Her undergraduate research advisor is Kevin Hunt, professor in the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Aquaculture and researcher in the Forest and Wildlife Research Center.
