Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology

The Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology is a dedicated group of scientists and students interested in research and training in the fields of biology, ecology, and conservation of all wildlife and fish species, and to resolution of human-wildlife conflicts.

Wildlife, Fish and Conservation Biology promotes research and understanding of the biology of wild vertebrates, including native, non-native, and pest species, with the goal of improving management of these species for the people of California and elsewhere. We serve the needs of California through targeted research, extension and outreach, undergraduate teaching, and graduate mentoring in the increasingly critical fields of ecology, conservation, and wildlife and fisheries management. Our conceptual arena is the ecology and conservation of wild vertebrates, and resolution of negative interactions between people and wildlife species.
