Species and Programs
The American black bear is the most common and widely distributed of the three bears found in Canada.
The cougar is the largest of the three wild cats in Canada. Active all year, it can take down prey as large as a moose.
BC Goes Wild Weekend
The third weekend of September is when we encourage the residents of BC to enjoy a BC Goes Wild Weekend!
Junior Ranger Program
Our Junior Ranger Program is intended to introduce students to the concept of human-wildlife conflict and encourage them to take an active role in reducing human-wildlife conflict.
The Wildlife Alert Reporting Program keeps you up-to-date with wildlife encounter data as it is entered by the BC Conservation Officer Service and the general public.
WildSafeBC is a program designed to reduce human-wildlife conflict through education, innovation and cooperation.
Our motto of "keeping wildlife wild and communities safe" underscores our belief that if we can keep wildlife from becoming habituated we can, in turn, make our communities safer for us and at the same time keep wildlife from coming to harm.
WildSafeBC is designed, owned and delivered by the BC Conservation Foundation. It is delivered throughout the province and exists in communities where we have established partnerships between local funding bodies (such as municipalities and regional districts) and with our primary funder: the provincial government.
If your community does not have a WildSafeBC Community Coordinator and you think your area would benefit from such a program you can contact us directly by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We’ll help you understand the steps and funding processes and hopefully be able to help you help your community.
