WildSafeBC has a new face in the Bella Coola Valley. Fraser Koroluk has joined the WildSafeBC program as the local Community Coordinator.

Following a week long training session in Kamloops, Koroluk is now about to launch a season of door-to-door campaigning, school programs, public displays and generally working with the public to help “keep wildlife wild and our communities safe.”

WildSafeBC has found that if wildlife is kept from becoming food-conditioned or habituated to the presence of humans, then they retain their natural wariness of humans and the potential for conflict can be greatly reduced.

WildSafeBC provides conflict reduction advice for all types of wildlife – everything from bears, coyotes, cougars, deer, raccoons and even rattlesnakes for those communities that have them.

Koroluk encourages residents to go WildSafeBC’s interactive mapping program to see where, when and why wildlife has been seen in their neighbourhood. The website is found at https://warp.wildsafebc.com/

Residents concerned about wildlife in their community or persons wishing to book Koroluk for a presentation at an event can contact Koroluk by either email at bellacoola@wildsafebc.com or by calling 250-302-1165.

WildSafeBC gratefully acknowledges the support of the Province of BC, the Nuxalk Nation (Stewardship Office), and the BC Conservation Foundation. Without their support this valuable program would not exist.
