Unprecedented growth in outdoor recreation in the Sea to Sky region has increased concerns over human-wildlife conflicts and impacts to wildlife. While we expect human-wildlife interactions are increasing as recreational use increases, we know very little about the number of recreational users or the species and abundance of wildlife on or near trails in the Sea to Sky region. In this talk, Kim Dawe (Quest University, Life Sciences) will share how existing knowledge from elsewhere, and remote camera sampling in our region, can help us understand what’s happening, so we can manage risks to both humans and wildlife.
