The Fur-Bearers strives to create and maintain resources that will help individuals, communities, and municipalities prevent or mitigate wildlife conflict, as well as educate residents on how to live peacefully with wildlife. Below is a list of our available print resources. If you’d like to learn more about them, or to order some for your community, please contact Marcy Potter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Door Hangers: Coyote, Cougar, and Bear
These door hangers notify residents of coyote, bear or cougar activity in their neighbourhood. Each door hanger features tips on how to remove attractants and how to respond appropriately should you spot one of these predators. Ideal for individuals and groups to distribute to homes in a targeted community.
Co-existing with Beavers pamphlet
Beavers are iconic in Canada – but their presence is also considered a nuisance to many different types of landowners. Fortunately, lethal control isn’t the only option. The Fur-Bearers have worked with top experts in North America to develop the Living With Wildlife: Beavers program, and this pamphlet highlights some of the solutions now available to mitigate and prevent conflict, including various flow devices and tree wrapping. It also briefly describes the importance of beavers in ecosystems as a keystone species.
Living With Skunks and Raccoons pamphlet
The headlines we see about wildlife conflict are usually large carnivores, like bears or coyotes. But most people – particularly those in urban areas – will more often come into conflict or have concerns about small mammals like skunks and raccoons. These crafty critters can pose unique challenges, but solutions to preventing and mitigating conflict with them do exist. Our Living With Skunks and Raccoons pamphlet includes tips on removing attractants, wildlife proofing homes, municipal policies, and biological information about these small mammals.
