Tales from the Test Tube: Chemistry at the National Wildlife Research Center

Throughout the National Wildlife Research Center’s (NWRC) history, chemists have played a key role in the development, evaluation and registration of chemically-based wildlife damage management tools. The Center’s Chemistry Laboratory Unit supports wildlife research by exploring and testing chemical compounds and formulations for use in baits, attractants, repellents, toxicants, and vaccines. These activities, as well as the development of analytical methods to evaluate the impacts of chemically-based tools on the environment and wildlife, provide valuable information for product registration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
