Ryan Brook:

Hogs on the Lam: Large, Intelligent, Invasive and in your Back Forty

Ryan Brook grew up on a farm in southern Manitoba and was fascinated by both farming and wildlife. Now, as an Associate Professor in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources, he is captivated by the interactions between wildlife and agriculture: this leads him to work on many things, among them wild boar and feral pigs.

Ryan will talk about the biology of wild pigs and their rapid increase in population here and around the world. He will talk about the problems that they cause and his team's current research. He will also discuss what might be done to curtail their activities.
