Wildlife Protection

Despite media reports, it's estimated that fewer than 50 shark attacks occur worldwide each year (fewer than seven of which are fatal), and the likelihood of being attacked by a grizzly bear is minimal. It's true that animals and people don't always mix, but before you cancel your sailing or camping trip, educate yourself on the facts and fiction.

Large predators including sharks, grizzly bears, and wolves are necessary for the survival of the food chain. They promote healthy ecosystems by helping to maintain a predator/prey balance. In areas where humans have eliminated large predators (by hunting wolves, for example), animals like deer and elk tend to become overpopulated.

Although predators are more likely to retreat than attack when encountering humans, find out what you need to know to protect yourself and your family, and to protect endangered animals. Through education and action, we can help preserve healthy, diverse environments where humans and wildlife can coexist. Use the links below to get started now.
