Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center
Controlling Blackbird Damage to Sunflower and Grain Crops in the Northern
Research and Methods Implementation
The Denver Wildlife Research Center (DWRC), which is part of USDA's ADC program,
is the only Federal entity devoted to wildlife damage-control research. DWRC
scientists, located in Denver and at field research stations throughout the
United States, design and test environmentally safe and cost-effective methods
of reducing wildlife-human conflicts. University researchers and private industry
also contribute valuable information for solving wildlife problems.
Wildlife management methods developed by these research programs are used
under field conditions by ADC's wildlife specialists. Regional headquarters
are located in Denver, CO (303 321-6560), and Nashville, TN (615 781-5418).
ADC also maintains many State offices, which are usually located in State
capitals. We encourage sunflower growers to contact their State's ADC office
for assistance with wildlife damage problems.
