This workshop provided information and tools that communities can use to protect wildlife and their habitat. Human-wildlife conflicts were discussed along with actions that municipalities can take to minimize these conflicts, particularly during the planning and development process. Presenters discussed things to consider when identifying important local habitats as well as a range of tools to incorporate wildlife into municipal planning and decision-making. Following a presentation on these topics, class participants had a chance to explore the application of these tools to a rural setting with a planning/mapping exercise.
