As our human population continues to grow, the pressure on natural resources will inevitably increase. In the past thirty years humans have come a long way in terms of managing fish and wildlife, conserving soil, and protecting the water supply, but it is up to future generations to continue that progress. Wildlife and Natural Resource Management shows you the path to that future – and builds a greater appreciation for the natural world and its limited resources.
