  • What are the biggest aspects of wildlife resource management?
    • Conservation
    • Control
    • Sustainable harvest
  • What can low genetic diversity lead to?
    Low genetic diversity can reduce population viability and reduce resistance to diseases.
  • Does climate change lead to extinction?
    There is no evidence yet that climate change is a direct cause of extinction but it is definitely expected to have negative (indirect) effects in the future.
