Living Peacefully with Wildlife


Together, we can learn how to peacefully coexist with wild animals and support their natural habitats.

As more natural habitats like forests and deserts turn into buildings and roadways, wild animals are forced into smaller and more crowded spaces—including our own backyards. While we may see the presence of these animals as a nuisance, they are simply trying to survive.

There are a number of ways to live peacefully with wildlife: by driving safely, especially on country roads, by creating a more humane backyard and by avoiding conflict with local wildlife.
