About Us Programs Wildlife &
Wildlife Close-up Human/Wildlife

For more than 25 years the Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre has been working on behalf of wildlife. The Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre is committed to educating people about wildlife and helping to foster an appreciation for the natural world and the importance of protecting biodiversity as well as give people the basic tools to solve human/wildlife conflicts in a humane and cost-effective way, allowing them to live in greater harmony with nature.

If we are to succeed in responding to the significant environmental challenges we are facing as a society, humans have to recognize we are part of nature not simply an outside observer of it. Each of us has the chance to help conserve nature, starting in our own backyard.
