Animal fertility control is used around the world to manage wild animal populations such as wild horses and deer. This intelligent approach offers a publicly acceptable, common-sense approach to managing and responsibly reducing sustainable wildlife populations according to individual habitat.
Fertility control programs for wild horses in America have been successful in delivering desired population outcomes. This non-lethal method of managing animal populations is an ethical alternative to brutal and indiscriminate shooting programs.
Fertility drugs such as GonaCon are affordable and will effectively render both male and female animals infertile for 3 years or more. Remote delivery via injectable marker dart provides the simplest method for trackable delivery - If you can find them to shoot them, you can find them to dart them.
Alphadog AnimalArmy Inc. specialises in remote delivery and chemical immobilisationl for non-lethal wildlife management. A leading Tranquiliser Firearms & Chemical Immobilisation course is run weekly by charity Director and accredited instructor, Marcus Fillinger.
Alphadog AnimalArmy Inc. specifically advocates the implementation of fertility control programs for kangaroos as the ethical alternative to the continued cruel and costly culling of Australia's national icon. Working directly with the ACT government to implement a kangaroo fertility control program in the Territory's Gungaderra reserve, we are at the forefront of progressive, non-lethal management solutions.
Non-lethal solutions are the future of wildlife management in Australia and around the world.
GonaCon Fertility Control Drug for use in mammals: available for global distribution since 2013
The GonaCon-Equine vaccine stimulates the production of antibodies that bind to the gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) in an animal’s body. GnRH signals the production of sex hormones (e.g., estrogen, progesterone and testosterone). By binding to GnRH, the antibodies reduce GnRH’s ability to stimulate the release of these sex hormones. All sexual activity is decreased, and animals remain in a nonreproductive state as long as a sufficient level of antibody activity is present. The product can be delivered by hand injection, jab stick, or darting.
