Wildlife Conservation

We are fortunate to live in a community with an abundance of nature and wildlife, but it also comes with great responsibility.  We need to respect the relationship we have with our feathered and furred neighbours to keep everyone safe.

Staying Safe Around Wildlife

The easiest way to prevent conflicts human-wildlife conflicts is to remove all wildlife attractants. E.g., keep food indoors, clean BBQs, collect ripened fruit, birdseed limitations, and compost & proper waste/compost management.
