According to the 2011 census, the City of Vancouver is the eighth most populous city in Canada with a population of 603,502 people.
A coastal, seaport city on the mainland of British Columbia, Vancouver is situated on the western half of the Burrard Peninsula, bounded to the north by English Bay and the Burrard Inlet and to the south by the Fraser River.
Vancouver's ever-growing residential and commercial development is encroaching on the wilderness and natural habitat that is home to various species.
Vancouver's urban wildlife neighbours consist of a variety of animals. You may face a number of wild animals — most of which do not take up residence in homes or buildings. Unfortunately, rats, raccoons, squirrels, skunks, pigeons, starlings, woodpeckers and bats have adapted to the city landscape and dwell among our neighbourhoods.
You may also encounter these creatures in various wild edges of the city, from the 400-hectare Stanley Park (one of the largest urban parks in North America) to any of the 300 Vancouver-run parks, beaches, and gardens.
The City of Vancouver deals with many wildlife issues within its boundaries, and works with other government departments and agencies on wildlife concerns.
When intervention is necessary, AAA Wildlife takes into consideration the animals' well being and uses exclusion principles rather than trapping to relocate or killing.
