SCIF promotes science-based wildlife management and conservation activities to provide credible information for wildlife policy and management decisions. In North America, the primary focus is on investigating the impacts predators have on prey populations. A lack of attention has been given to predator-prey dynamics as most research efforts are focused on a single species. Understanding the role predators play at the landscape scale will improve the effectiveness of managing a balance between predators and prey. Maintaining a balance would ensure the sustainable use of wildlife at a determined level. SCIF also supports projects involving habitat/species enhancement and wildlife diseases.
