Urban Wildlife

We share our environment with urban wildlife. It is everyone's responsibility to minimize the potential for conflict with these animals. The following pages provide helpful information and links on dealing with some of the different types of animals that can be found in Courtenay.

If you encounter threatening wildlife:

  • Do not run.
  • Make yourself look big.
  • Be loud and aggressive.

If you encounter wildlife that is aggressive or causing property damage, please call the Conservation Officer Service at 1-877-952-7277 (RAPP).
