Pest control

Pest control is the control of real or perceived pests and can be used for the benefit of wildlife, farmers, gamekeepers or human safety. In the United States, wildlife management practices are often implemented by a governmental agency to uphold a law, such as the endangered species act.

In the United Kingdom, wildlife management is undertaken by several organizations  including government bodies such as the Forestry commission, Charities such as the RSPB and The wildlife trust and privately hired gamekeepers and contractors. Legislation has also been passed to protect wildlife such as the wildlife & countryside act1981. The UK government also give farming subsidies through the country side stewardship scheme to improve the conservation value of their farms.
