The province is investing money to help reduce human-wildlife conflicts.

WildSafe BC is receiving $275,000 for education initiatives.

Deputy Chief of the Conservation Service, Chris Doyle says the funding will go to education and increased awareness of how to reduce human-wildlife conflict. Doyle says the partnership is a winning situation. He notes that last year, they received over 28.,000 reports of human-wildlife conflict.

Doyle says we’re heading into the time of year when there are more human-wildlife conflicts.

Doyle says the WildSafe BC website also offers tips to reduce human – wildlife conflicts.
