Five ways to share space with wildlife

No matter where you live or visit in the Yellowstone to Yukon region, you can practice coexistence.

Here are some ways to get involved and ensure animals stay safe:

  • Remove fruit trees and berry bushes, or pick fruit promptly, on your property.
  • Dispose of trash properly so bears can’t access it easily.
  • Carry bear spray when recreating.
  • Leash dogs so all furry friends stay safe.
  • Host a showing of the free Living with Wildlife film at home, work or at a school.
