Human-Wildlife Interactions and Conflict

British Columbia, with its far-ranging network of roads, widely dispersed communities and innumerable tracts of wilderness, offers a multitude of opportunities for human and wildlife interactions. While this is a wonderful opportunity for learning to appreciate the natural world and its inhabitants, not all encounters are mutually beneficial. Human-wildlife conflict represents the majority of interest for MoE Wildlife inquires regarding waterfowl, racoons, coyotes, deer, black bears, elk, cougars, bobcats, skunks, and beavers (the most complex).
