People encounter a great diversity of damage problems caused by wildlife, for which they need effective and timely solutions. Published materials or sources of help often are scattered, difficult to locate, and often members of the public struggle to find help in dealing with problem wildlife. The author describes three fictional scenarios, based on his experience in helping people find reputable information on solutions to wildlife damage problems. The article lists federal, state, and local agencies within California that can provide assistance and information concerning vertebrate pests; lists recent publications that are helpful sources of information; and lists organizations and professional associations that facilitate knowledge and training regarding wildlife damage management.
