- Wildlife Conservation: The goal of wildlife conservation is to protect threatened and endangered species and their habitats, and to ensure that wildlife populations are sustainable for future generations.
- Essential Components for Wildlife: Wildlife requires water, food, and shelter in order to survive and thrive. These components are critical for the health and well-being of wildlife populations.
- Habitat Loss: Habitat loss is the reduction or destruction of an area of land that provides essential resources for wildlife. Urbanization, agricultural expansion, and industry are some of the main causes of habitat loss.
- Carrying Capacity: Carrying capacity in wildlife management refers to the number of wildlife that can be supported by a given area of habitat. This is an important factor to consider in wildlife management, as overpopulation can lead to reduced health and survival of wildlife populations.
- Wildlife Management: Wildlife management is the science of conserving and managing wildlife populations and habitats. This includes monitoring wildlife populations, managing hunting and fishing, and protecting threatened and endangered species.
- Wildlife Restocking: Wildlife restocking involves the introduction of new species to an area, in order to increase biodiversity or to reestablish species that have been lost due to habitat destruction or other reasons.
- Texas Ecoregions: Texas Ecoregions are regions in the state with similar climate, geology, and vegetation. Understanding the ecoregions of Texas is important for wildlife conservation, as each ecoregion provides unique habitats for different species.
- Game Animals: Game animals are wildlife species that are hunted for sport or food in Texas. Examples include deer, turkey, and squirrel.
- Game Birds: Game birds are bird species that are hunted for sport or food in Texas. Examples include quail, dove, and duck.
- Non-game Animals: Non-game animals are wildlife species that are not hunted for sport or food in Texas. Examples include armadillos, skunks, and opossums.
- Exotic and Fur-bearing Species: Exotic and fur-bearing species are wildlife species that have been introduced from other countries and are often hunted for their fur. Examples include muskrats and beavers.
- Threatened, Endangered and Protected Animals: Threatened, endangered, and protected animals are species that are in danger of becoming extinct and are protected by law. Examples include the bald eagle and the whooping crane.
- Invasive Aquatic Species: Invasive aquatic species are non-native species that are introduced into aquatic ecosystems, often causing harm to native species and ecosystems. Examples include zebra mussels and Asian carp.
- Wildlife Identification: Wildlife identification is the process of determining the species of an animal based on its physical characteristics, behavior, habitat, and range. This is an important skill for hunters, wildlife biologists, and anyone interested in wildlife conservation.
