For the first time since 2016, the Trans-Pecos Wildlife Conference will be held at Sul Ross State University (SRSU) from August 4–5 of this year. The event will be co-hosted by the Borderlands Research Institute (BRI), Texas Wildlife Association (TWA), and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD).
The Trans-Pecos is one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world, but managing wildlife in the desert is difficult where frequent drought, invasive species, and brush encroachment seem to constantly challenge landowners’ ability to meet their conservation goals. The Trans-Pecos Wildlife Conference aims to address the needs of landowners and managers by covering relevant topics on big game species like pronghorn, aoudad, bighorn sheep, and mule deer, as well as nongame species like black bears and songbirds. Attention will also be given to energy development and conservation planning, as well as landowner support programs for habitat restoration activities.
