Georgia is fortunate to have abundant wildlife. Birds, mammals, reptiles and insects provide beauty and interest for those who take the time to notice, and are also a source of recreation for many Georgians.

Managing wildlife can be a challenge for experts and homeowners. This is particularly true as population centers continue to expand and displace animals' native habitats. UGA Extension provides tips and information about coexisting peacefully with, protecting and managing wildlife, wherever it's found.
