The 2014 International Wild Pig Conference will be held April 13-16 at the Embassy Suites and Conference Center in Montgomery, hosted by Steve Ditchkoff and Mark Smith, faculty members at Auburn’s School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences.
Led by plenary speaker Kevin Shea, Administrator of the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, the conference will showcase the latest in wild pig research and management. The International Wild Pig Conference is the only forum in the world that provides federal, state, and private stakeholders a venue to discuss biological, financial, and social implications specific to wild pigs.
A new feature to the biennial event is a day-long Technical Training Session designed for newcomers that will critically examine the issues surrounding wild pigs, and then identify the best tools, techniques, management strategies, and collaborations to move forward in controlling the problem.
