Controversies over the conservation of white-tailed deer and wolves in Wisconsin have had an outsize influence in development of Wildlife Management as a scientific discipline and are also a lightning rod for political influence. Controversy is fueled by perceptions that, while intuitive, are not supported by the available science. But appealing to science alone is insufficient because it cannot address competing ethical positions. Professor Van Deelen will explore these issues.
