Wildlife-Human Interactions


Overview: The province of British Columbia is known for its natural beauty and for its wildlife. The variety of ecosystems that exist within the province are home to many species of wildlife including grizzly bears, migratory birds and multiple marine mammal species. Human activities often have profound if unintended effects on these animals, and these impacts are an important area of concern to many British Columbians.

Who we are: Wildlife research is led by Professor David Fraser along with a number of graduate students.

Funding: Due to limited resources, the Animal Welfare Program has only been able to take on projects in this area under exceptional circumstances; however, developing resources to allow more leadership in this area is an important goal for the Program’s future.
