Sign up to attend a free information session to learn how to co-exist safely with urban coyotes.

Coquitlam and Port Moody are collaborating with the Stanley Park Ecology Society for the second year to provide information on common misconceptions about urban coyotes, as well as tips to help keep your family and pets safe.

Register to attend one of two free information sessions

Coyote breeding season is underway now through April, which means they will be more active as they secure and protect territory. Residents may hear coyotes howling and yipping more often as they communicate with each other and establish their territories, and may even come across coyotes while the animals are active and seeking mates.

Minimizing conflicts between coyotes, humans, and pets is important in protecting the safety of our community, and our urban wildlife. Coyotes have a vital role to play in the urban ecosystem as they help control the population of rodents and other wildlife.

Presented by Dezirae Barreto from the Stanley Park Ecology Society, each one-hour session will provide information about coyote breeding season, common misconceptions about urban coyotes, what to do if you encounter a coyote, and ways to manage attractants. All ages are welcome to attend.

About the Stanley Park Ecology Society

Stanley Park Ecology Society – a registered charity since 1988 – began as the Stanley Park Zoological Society. Following the closure of the Park’s petting zoo in 1995, the society revised its name but continued with its aims of education, conservation, and outreach programs.
