Wildlife Conflict Resources

Conservation Officer Service

Conservation Officers respond to conflicts with dangerous wildlife where there is a risk to public safety. Conservation Officers do not respond to routine sightings, normal wildlife behaviour, such as wildlife transiting through greenbelts or forested areas, nuisance conflicts or conflicts that do not pose a risk to public safety, or to situations where the complainant can take simple measures to address the problem, such as securing garbage, removing bird seed, or properly managing compost.
