WildSafe Ranger Program

Introducing the Wildsafe Rangers

Our WildSafe Ranger Program stimulates discussion regarding wildlife and introduces students to the concept of human-wildlife conflict. Youth are encouraged 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! In addition, children learn how to have a safe and respectful relationship with wildlife.

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.

2021 WildSafe Ranger Contest

Do you have a budding young artist in your life who also cares about wildlife? Are you looking for a way to teach kids about wildlife attractants while camping?

For WildSafeBC's 6th Annual BC Goes Wild, we are hosting a colouring contest! Kids can complete the WildSafe Rangers colouring sheet and send it in, and then we’ll draw for one lucky person to receive a set of buttons, a WildSafeBC hat, and $50!
 
This is a great way to help kids (and adults!) identify potential wildlife attractants.
