American Humane supports careful assessment and planning on how to properly control wildlife populations so that animal numbers are appropriate for sustaining good health and welfare. In some cases, this would mean controlling the population of a species that can no longer be sustained in an environment of diminished resources, or is threatening to overcome other native species. In other cases, this would mean supporting reproduction of endangered species and working to develop species protection plans for saving a species and allowing for the proper reintroduction of animals into an appropriate habitat.
