Wildlife in the City

Airdrie is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including deer, moose, bobcat, rabbit, skunk, coyote, gopher and beaver. Co-existing with wildlife is crucial in sustaining a healthy urban ecosystem that includes pollination, balanced wildlife and resilient natural spaces. It is important to ensure safe interactions between humans and animals by following a few guidelines:

• Give wildlife space - encroaching on wildlife may lead to unpredictable behaviour.

• Do not feed wildlife - feeding wildlife creates dependance.

• Properly dispose of waste - keep waste out of the food chain.

• Keep pets on leash - controlling interactions provides safety for wildlife and pets.

• Use caution driving - be alert, to avoid collisions with wildlife.
