The potential value of immunosterilization as a means to control species of wildlife that are widespread, numerous and undesirable is assessed. Key questions about the efficacy of fertility control and the means for delivering antigens expressed in recombinant viral vectors are discussed and the legal and social concerns that relate to its possible future use are raised.
