Outreach & Education

Our goal is to educate the Kawartha and Peterborough communities on the benefits of wildlife coexistence. We believe that wildlife not only has intrinsic value but provides real and tangible benefits in the form of a balanced ecosystem and bringing together the local and regional community.  Everyone has a stake in a healthy environment. We need fish in our lakes; animals in our forests, and birds in our skies.

Virtual Presentations

Relying on public health recommendations for groups and public gatherings due to COVID19, we have adapted our educational programs to work in a virtual experience format.

Classroom Outreach

Perfect for all age groups

Our educational programs cover a variety of topics surrounding native Ontario wildlife and healthy coexistence practices. - Learn more about native species you might spot in your own back yard or while out on the trails. - Learn what different species eat and how they survive through seasonal changes. - Learn how to plant a pollinator garden and what birds and animals it can support. - Learn how you can help you wild neighbours!

Classroom Programs

We pride ourselves on engaging with the next generation of wildlife health advocates. As such, we value the opportunity to share our knowledge in your classrooms. We relate to much of the curriculum in the Understanding Life Systems for the Grade 1-8 Science curriculum and the Biology stream for the Grade 9-12 Science Curriculum: Grade 1: Plants and animals, including people, are living things; Different kinds of things behave in different ways; all living things are important and should be treated with respect; changes in daily and seasonal cycles affect living things Grade 2: Animals have distinct characteristics; there are similarities and difference among different kinds of animals Grade 4: plants and animals are interdependent and are adapted to meet their needs from the resources available in their particular habitats, changes to habitats (whether caused by natural or human means) can affect plants and animals and the relationships between them Grade 6: Biodiversity includes diversity of individuals, species, and ecosystems, humans make choices that can have an impact on biodiversity Grade 7: Ecosystems are made up of biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) elements which depend on each other to survive; human activities have the potential to alter the environment. Humans must be aware of these impacts and try and control them. Grade 9: Sustainable ecosystems and human activity Grade 11: Diversity of living things, evolution, animals: structure and function, anatomy of mammals There is also a strong intersection in the value and importance of understanding wildlife science and its context in Social studies, History and Geography due to the implications to the fur trade, colonization, indigenous culture and the relationship between people and environmental for Canada over the centuries.
