In 2020, at the request of the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (SEAFWA), the Wildlife Management Institute (WMI) established a program to test trash containers, coolers, food vaults, and other products for their ability to resist entry by black bears. This program is similar to the ongoing program for grizzly bears coordinated by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC) that tests similar products on grizzlies. One addition to the black bear program that is not a part of the IGBC program is the field testing of Toxicant Delivery Devices (TDDs) that are designed to selectively feed toxicant baits to feral swine with minimal impact to non-target species such as bears, raccoons, raptors, etc. To carry out this program, WMI will coordinate the testing in alignment with the SEAFWA-developed protocol in captive zoos across the Southeast (for products other than TDDs) and in the wild (for TDDs) in coastal North Carolina. Earlier this summer, WMI completed trial tests at both captive and wild locations to ensure that the protocol is sound and to ensure that the program is ready to become operational.
