Living with Wildlife

​​​When natural food sources are scarce, wildlife will search for food which often leads to sightings in residential areas.

To reduce the potential of wildlife encounters here are some tips:

  • Limit food sources
  • Keep barbecues clean and covered when not in use
  • Secure garbage in durable plastic containers with locking lids
  • Store garbage indoors until collection day
  • Maintain compost in containers that keep wildlife out while allowing for ventilation
