Our Mission is to reduce human-wildlife conflicts in communities through education, innovation and cooperation
Our motto is to "Keep wildlife wild-- and our communities safe". We want to keep our community safe, and at the same time keep wildlife from coming to harm. If we can educate communities as to how to live responsibly with wildlife we can drastically reduce the conflicts and can reduce the number of bears that have to be destroyed.
It's the number one attractant that will keep bears, racoons, and other wildlife coming back to your yard. Educate yourself about how to safeguard your garbage, and tell your neighbours; when bears become habituated, it's a problem for everyone
The black bears on our beautiful island are active from roughly April to November. To learn how to keep them out of your yard, please check out our "Managing Attractants" page. And remember, a bear that finds an easy source of food at your house will quickly become a regular visitor!
