Wildlife Fact Sheets

The presence of wildlife in our backyards and cities brings the wonder of nature closer to home and enriches our lives. Yet, sometimes sharing our environment with wildlife is a challenge, particularly when a newly planted flower bed is eaten by a late-night visitor or a family of small animals moves into the attic. Fortunately, there are simple and humane solutions to help us coexist in peace with these amazing survivors who deserve our compassion and respect. When dealing with wildlife please consider the enormous hardships wild species encounter because so much of their habitat has been destroyed. Each year they are forced into closer contact with humans and must compete with us for food, shelter and space. With a little understanding, patience and a few precautions and common sense steps, we can all enjoy the wonderfully interesting wild animals who share our backyards and cities.
