I'm Sydney Brewer, originally from a farm in Falls City, Nebraska. I proudly graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife from the School of Natural Resources at UNL in May 2021. Presently, I'm pursuing a Master of Science degree at the University of Georgia's Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. My research focus is dedicated to the exploration of baiting and attractant methods for the management of wild pigs, especially in regions where they are invasive species. It's crucial to note that wild pigs, when invasive, wreak substantial havoc on crops and landscapes, engage in competition with native species, and present a significant disease risk.
My unwavering motivation for this project is deeply rooted in my connection to farming and the firsthand experience of witnessing the substantial financial losses incurred due to wild pig activity. I am dedicated to developing highly effective techniques for attracting and eliminating these invasive species.
