WildSafe Ranger Program
Our WildSafe 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 at home by helping their families identify backyard wildlife attractants. Proactive attractant management is the most effective long term solution to human-wildlife conflict!
WildSafe Rangers will learn:
- Basic needs (habitat requirements) of local wildlife species
- The root causes of human wildlife conflict
- How human wildlife conflict impacts both people and animals
- What we can do at home to prevent human wildlife conflict
- How to stay safe in wildlife country
The WildSafe Ranger Program complements the BC Science K-9 Curriculum to foster “a basis for an intuitive relationship with and respect for the natural world; connections to their ecosystem and community; and a sense of relatedness that encourages lifelong harmony with nature.” To find out more, please contact either your local Community or Provincial Coordinator.
