The Anthropocene is proposed as the current epoch, which is “viewed as the period during which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment”. Many wildlife species, even if they are considered endangered, are overabundant in the ever-shrinking habitat ranges they occupy.
Overabundant species, even native ones, can reduce biodiversity by monopolizing resources, spreading infectious diseases, and changing species composition or relative abundance.

May 18, 2019 Mark Fraker and Ursula Bechert recently gave a presentation at a Wild Horse Management Conference in Reno, NV, where delegates from more than 90 organizations gathered to discuss possible solutions to the overpopulation problem. SpayVac has effectively prevented pregnancies in mares for 4+ years with a single injection, making it a front-runner in the race for effective immunocontraception.

May 2, 2019. Dr Ursula Bechert and Mr Mark Fraker are in demand to speak at wildlife conferences on the topic of SpayVac. They will be co-presenting data on SpayVac in wild horses at the Managing Free-roaming Equids and Sustainable Ecosystem conference in Reno, NV being held May 29-31, 2019.
Mr. Fraker will be speaking on SpayVac at the 37th Annual Native American Fish & Wildlife Society Annual Meeting on May 20, 2019 in Phoenix AZ.
Interest in SpayVac is very high as reflected by the demand for Mr Fraker and Dr Bechert to share information on SpayVac for leading wildlife control authorities around the world.
The only pZP vaccine to demonstrate up to 5 years of efficacy in deer with a single-dose is SpayVac®. Trials with SpayVac have been done in both white-tail deer and fallow deer.
SpayVac® has been tested in several invasive or overabundant mammalian wildlife species.
SpayVac® has been tested in three trials in horses demonstrating reduced fertility rates over a 2-5 year time frame with a single dose.
