Conservation Brochures


The following brochures are provided in PDF format.

Bears and Cougars: Keep your visit to BC's protected areas safe by acting responsibly and respecting the wildlife. Your actions affect the safety of future park visitors and the animals that make provincial parks their home.

Campground Companions: You don't have to travel far in BC's protected areas to encounter wildlife. Look and listen for signs of birds, mammals and other creatures around the campground.

Life at the Edge: The intertidal zone is the most accessible area of the ocean, which also makes it highly vulnerable. By understanding and respecting intertidal life, you can visit the seashore without impacting its inhabitants.

Natural Cycles of Change in Protected Areas - Part 1 and Natural Cycles of Change in Protected Areas - Part 2: Many visitors to provincial protected areas are curious about why trees are left to lie on the ground or insect attacks are sometimes left unchecked. This brochure provides information on the ecological importance of these natural processes.

Research Guidelines: This brochure is to assist anyone who is seeking permission to conduct research activities in protected areas, as to explain the process for receiving an approved research permit.

Things to Do Outdoors: This brochure describes activities you can enjoy on a visit to BC's protected areas. All you need is curiosity to learn more about nature.

Wildlife Viewing - Part 1 and Wildlife Viewing - Part 2 As wildlife viewers, our goal is to watch animals behaving in natural ways in their natural habitats. We respect the needs of wild animals for space, natural vegetation and ecological community. We recognize our responsibility to know the consequences of wildlife viewing.
