Staying Safe Around Wildlife

The most effective and natural way to prevent conflicts with wildlife is to put garbage, birdseed, compost and pet food away, and to keep fruit from trees off the ground. Communities where attractants are managed properly have less human-wildlife conflicts and fewer animals destroyed. Despite our best efforts, we can never eliminate the risk of human-wildlife conflict. We must all accept our responsibilities to ensure that humans and wildlife can coexist. Learn more about common species in B.C. and how to reduce conflicts and remain safe around cougars, bears and wolves.
