New guides on rural wildlife management
Oct 29, 2013 / 5:00 am
A new series of guides, providing advice for the agricultural sector on wildlife management, are now available.
Zoe Kirk with the Regional District Okanagan Similkameen and Margaret Holm of the Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Alliance have completed a series of eight "Living with Wildlife in BC" guides specifically targeting wildlife mitigation and management.
The effort stems from farmers, ranchers, orchardists and others working in agriculture reporting crop losses and property damage as a result of wildlife conflict. Species covered include black bears, cougars, coyotes/wolves, ungulates, starlings, snakes and rodents.
"This project brings together information from a wide variety of sources and is available for anyone to download at no charge," said Holm. "We will be promoting and distributing the guides as widely as possible through agricultural and safety organizations."
In addition to providing the printed and web-based materials, articles will be submitted to industry publications and the authors will provide seminars to agricultural organizations in 2014.
The public can download or review the guides at: www.osca.org., Living with Wildlife pages.
