The University of Waterloo today announced it is striking a task force to examine how UW manages campus-dwelling wildlife that pose a risk.
Deep Saini, Dean of the Faculty of Environmental Studies, will lead the task force which will draw on campus expertise in wild-life and animal-care management, and will consult as appropriate. Recommendations of the task force will be made to the university's Provost, Amit Chakma.
Although UW's recent actions concerning beavers were congruent with Ministry of Natural Resources guidelines, the University is sensitive to the outpouring of public opinion.
