Wildlife Encounters Ltd. conducts detailed onsite wildlife safety audits for each client’s remote locations. Designed for your work sites, we compile and deliver a Predator Conflict Management Plan (PCMP), or in some instances a more comprehensive Worksite Wildlife Management Plan (WWMP). Written plans address observations & recommendations, and offer accountability measures for Best Management Practices (BMPs) around managing attractants, operating protocols, worker behaviour, worksite protocols/policies, compliance, and wildlife security. Wild Encounters Ltd. can also assist with implementation.
