Wildlife Education

We believe in developing awareness through education.

Through outreach programming, we’re working to create strong co-existence between Albertans and wildlife. In 2019, our education team provided wildlife education to more than 6,050 members of the public.

We believe in cultivating strong co-existence between Albertans and wildlife animals.

95% of animals are injured or orphaned due to human activities. The most common causes of injury are window strikes, vehicle collision, hitting power lines, barbed wire, fishing line entanglement or ingestion, domestic cat and dog attacks, and exposure to toxins. Often wildlife is orphaned by needless rescuing of babies who should have been left where they were.

We want children to build a strong relationship with nature.

Our actions impact the environment and its wildlife. We encourage children to respect the environment around them by inspiring a passion for conservation and sustainability. We know that children and youth who develop an early understanding of their relationship with nature and wildlife become life-long advocates for wildlife and champions for the care, protection and health of wild animals.

We are advocates for encouraging environmental stewardship in the next generation.

By educating children about nature and environmental awareness, we inform young Albertans how their actions can impact the environment on a larger, provincial scale.
