Welcome to the Clifton Deer Fertility Control Pilot Program

Here in the historic neighborhood of Clifton, we love our deer and don’t want to harm them . . . we just wish there weren’t so many of them.  Deer overabundance contributes to serious problems, including damage to the forest understory that can devastate the eco-system.

That’s why Clifton and Cincinnati’s award winning Parks have joined forces to test an innovative and humane approach to the problem of overabundant deer:  Cincinnati’s first non-lethal deer fertility control Pilot Program.

This 5 year Pilot Program concluded its first year field operations in early December 2015 and its second year of field operations in January 2017.

For communities thinking about a fertility control program, we offer this outline of considerations based on our experience.

An exciting, innovative, and humane deer fertility control pilot program
