Elkford forms Urban Wildlife Committee

Elkford has created a committee to deal with the District’s urban wildlife population.

Elkford has created a committee to deal with the District’s urban wildlife population. The Urban Wildlife Management Advisory Committee will examine issues with animals within Elkford and provide Council with suggestions as to how they should be addressed.

The committee will be tasked with four objectives; to identify Elkford’s current issues with urban wildlife, to recognise acceptable options for dealing with the management of urban wildlife, to form strategies for the prevention and management of human-wildlife conflicts, and to present regular reports to Council with clear recommendations.

Six members of the public, along with a District of Elkford councillor will be appointed to sit on the committee. All members must be current Elkford residents.

The Urban Wildlife Committee was formed, following the dissolvent of Elkford’s Urban Deer Committee, which served a similar purpose, but was focused solely on deer. It was one of the former committee’s recommendation’s to Council that the new committee be created in order to properly deal with all of Elkford’s urban wildlife.

The committee’s terms of reference and volunteer application forms can be viewed on the District of Elkford’s website. Anyone interested in joining the committee can submit an application to the municipal office or email info@elkford.ca. Applications will  be accepted until the end of November.
