The Botstiber Institute for Wildlife Fertility Control (BIWFC) held a webinar entitled “Peri-urban Kangaroo Management using Fertility Control” on June 19, 2019. The webinar provides an overview of the management challenges posed by peri-urban kangaroo populations and reviews the current state of the field of fertility control as applied to free-living kangaroo populations in Australia. Highlights include key technical and policy challenges that limit the more widespread use of fertility control to manage suburban kangaroo populations, current research directions, and the way forward.
