Wildlife in Nanaimo Parks

Report Bear or Cougar Sightings

The City of Nanaimo would like to remind residents to watch for wildlife in Nanaimo's parks and trails. This time of year is busy with wildlife activity such as bears and their young seeking food to restore fat reserves depleted during winter and deer fawning season. 

While enjoying Nanaimo's many parks and trails people are reminded to be aware of their surroundings and keep an eye out for wildlife. Drivers are also reminded that deer are not uncommon on our roads especially at dusk and during the evening.

If you encounter a bear or cougar in one of Nanaimo's parks please contact 250-758-5222 or 250-756-5200.

"We are fortunate to live in a beautiful, natural setting. In this type of environment we must always be aware that wildlife are around us and use care when in Nanaimo's parks and trails." - Al Britton Manager, Parks Operations City of Nanaimo
