Abstract

Chemical fertility control is a neglected yet potentially powerful wildlife management tool that represents an effective, inexpensive, and humane alternative to current control methods. A large number of new contraceptive agents, designed primarily for use in humans, can be administered remotely by injection to large mammals or orally to smaller animals. These compounds will not cause death, do not disturb social order, and can be manipulated to protect nontarget species.
