Living with Wildlife in Newfoundland & Labrador

We live in harmony with most wildlife in Newfoundland and Labrador, often without even realizing it. Our forests and barrens are home to many animals. Unless we intentionally seek them out, some people can go a lifetime without being aware of their presence. As long as humans and wildlife respect each others' boundaries, conflicts can be avoided - but we all have to do our part to make sure we don't encourage behaviour that could cause problems for wildlife, such as Coyotes and Black Bears.
