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.
