Help keep wildlife safe

There are things you can do to help keep wildlife safe. These things can help you stay safe too.

Keep wild animals safe

Food can attract wild animals. It can be dangerous for both people and the animals.

Here’s what to do:

  • Store garbage indoors or get a bear-proof container.
  • Pick up fruit that falls from trees.
  • Remove bird feeders or hang them where animals cannot get to them.
  • Feed pets indoors.
  • Keep your barbeque clean.
  • Manage your compost properly.

Stay safe

Learn about the wild animals that live near you. What do they eat? When do they have their young? When are they most active? Are they dangerous?
