Throughout civilization, humans and wildlife have co-existed. This coexistence has over time resulted in numerous conflicts, ranging from crop damage to human health and safety. The Center for Resolving Human-Wildlife Conflicts at Mississippi State University finds resolutions for these conflicts, through research, education and outreach. The Center is the first among research-oriented land grant universities.
