Initiative 65

Using contraception technologies to manage pests and feral animals

Management of overabundant pest mammal populations using non-lethal approaches, such as fertility control agents, could be highly effective in some landscapes (e.g. urban and peri-urban areas, semi-enclosed or enclosed populations).

What are we doing?

This project, will  trial delivery of different fertility blockers. If successful, the outcome of the project will be orally deliverable fertility control agent(s) for use in management of wildlife and domestic animals.
