Co-Existing with Coyotes provides education, practical advice, and tools to respond to the presence of coyotes in their communities. It is designed to reduce conflict between people, pets, and coyotes. We engage the public through a variety of programs including:
We deploy site visits in response to reports of coyote activity of concern in particular areas. After a local assessment of potential sources of conflict such as food attractants and wildlife feeding, we can inform and equip residents with adaptive strategies through public outreach. These visits aim to educate and engage residents/community groups on measures they can take to address long-term coyote issues.
School Programs (“Coyotes 101”)
Our Coyotes 101 school presentation, designed for grades K-7 , will teach students what they need to know to co-exist safely with coyotes. Please click the link for more details.
Having trouble with coyotes at your workplace? Many outdoor industries expose employees to increased coyote encounters, such as golf courses, parks and industrial activities. We will visit your work site and deliver an interactive presentation and guided walk for staff to identify and mitigate coyote attractants and suggest ways for your staff to be coyote aware.
Community Program (“Communities & Coyotes”)
An interpretive walk or presentation designed to illustrate how and why coyotes use city green spaces and residential areas and how to respond appropriately when seeing a coyote. This is recommended for community groups that share the same localised coyote encounters, such as a community centre, neighbourhood watch, strata members, local clubs, etc.
We attend community events, such as community days and festivals, with an interpretive display and activities to educate the public on coyote life history and how to co-exist successfully.

Coyote educational programs are now available virtually! This option allows community groups, work crews, and schools to have safe access to this knowledge and get on the same page about co-existence strategies. We are happy to adapt our programming methods with the safety of the community in mind.
