Ongoing support from sponsors, collaboration with community groups, social and local media have enabled WildSafeBC to reach a broad range of residents and visitors. More than 700 children participated in the WildSafeBC Ranger Program, 400 adults attended thirteen wildlife awareness and safe use of bear spray workshops and over 500 contacts were made at community events. WildSafeBC and the Conservation Officer Service assessed over 600 properties and educated residents about managing garbage and fruit trees in rural areas and communities. The WildSafeBC program will be going into hibernation until May.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us keep communities safe and wildlife wild.
