Tips to Coexist with Wildlife

Many people enjoy living near and watching wildlife. You can help keep animals wild by keeping the following tips in mind. 


  • Do not encourage wildlife by feeding or leaving food for them.

  • Don't place food scraps in gardens or open compost bins. Use a closed compost bin. 

  • Keep pet food and water containers indoors, especially at night.

  • If you have fruit trees, harvest, or dispose of fruit when it is ripe. 

  • Use metal or durable plastic trash containers with tight fitting lids. 

  • Dispose of your trash responsibly.  Crush cans, cut plastic bottle and can rings and cap jars so wildlife do not become entrapped, entangled, or injured. 

  • Recycle as much as possible. 

  • Enjoy viewing wildlife at a distance with binoculars, a telescope, or a zoom camera lens. Respect their space and remember they are wild animals that should stay wild.
