Webinar Time: 6:30p-8:30p
Anticoagulant rodenticides (ARs) are rodent poisons used for pest control; however, non-target exposure has been documented in a wide variety of wildlife. Raptors are highly susceptible and become exposed when they consume contaminated prey.
Indirect effects of AR poisoning may also increase a raptor’s risk to injury, disease, and predation. Many studies have documented global AR exposure in raptors, but data on exposure rates is lacking from the southern U.S., especially in Texas. Eres will share her results from her Master’s research on local sampling efforts of owls admitted into rehabilitation in and around San Antonio, Texas.
