The Second Annual NJ Wildlife & Conservation Conference will take place June 6 to 8, 2014 at the Tropicana Casino & Resort, Atlantic City, NJ.

Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ, the NJ State Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs, and the NJ Division of Fish & Wildlife seek presenters for the Second Annual Conference (NJWCC).

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • Climate Change: coastal resiliency, sea level rise, coastal erosion, and restoration, especially as each relates to wildlife.
  • Energy: hydraulic fracturing, oil spills, windmills, and solar energy, particularly as they impact wildlife.
  • Human-Wildlife Interaction: Deer, bear, coyote, Canada geese, and wild turkey are among the many wildlife species increasing their populations in our densely populated state – and in turn increasing their interactions with humans and our economy.
  • Horseshoe Crabs & Red Knots: shorebirds and horseshoe crabs, such as effective management, horseshoe crab egg harvesting impacts, the role of lysate in cancer research, beach restoration of shorebird beaches in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, regulatory effectiveness in different states, and population survey trends.
  • New Jersey Wildlife Action Plans Specific and Regional Northeast Wildlife Issues: wildlife action plans, wildlife corridors, declines in quail and other key regional species, and both actual and potential species reintroductions.
  • Fishing & Marine: commercial and recreational fishing, overfishing of shark populations, jellyfish increases, sonar impacts on marine life, marine mammal strandings, pollution.
  • Policy: wildlife management or impacts within state or federal regulations and legislative action.
  • Wildlife Funding: wildlife management.
  • Communications: better outreach to sportsmen, birders and recreational users through both traditional and new media outreach.

Agenda will be posted as soon as it is finalized.

Multimedia of New Jersey's Natural Resources: New Jersey is a highly urbanized state, yet it is home to a diverse array of wildlife and natural habitats with plentiful opportunities to enjoy our lush natural resources.
