Wildlife Alert Reporting Program (WARP)


I thought I’d share an interesting item I came across while trying to find the old “Be Bear Aware” website. (It has now been integrated into WildSafeBC)

On the WildSafeBC website, scroll down to the bottom of the main page where you will find a map and the Wildlife Alert Reporting Program. (WARP) With this program, we can see what wildlife has been reported in Gold River and what action was taken by Conservation. Click on the program/map, then enter Gold River in the right hand side. You will then see a map much like the above photo. Play around with it a little bit – you can click each animal and a little report will pop up advising what type of animal, what type of call it was and what action was taken.

Note: if the animals are grouped closely or overlapping on the map, the first click separates them, then you can move your cursor over each animal and click individually.

The Bears are Here

It’s that time of year again when the bears come looking for easy meals in the Village.

They have been spotted in just about all areas of Gold River and at all times of the day and night.  Yesterday one bear was spotted in the afternoon crossing Nimpkish Drive, then heading up the hill towards Chamiss Crescent.

As most of us know by now:

  • Keep garbage secured
  • Pick any fruit left on trees and berry bushes
  • Take down bird feeders
  • Keep pet food indoors
  • Clean BBQ’s after use
  • Properly manage compost

*For those of you with chickens in your backyard, it is recommended that you install electric fencing around your chicken coop and run.



To report bear interactions where public safety is at risk, please call Conservation at 1-877-952-7277.  As per the Ministry of Environment, Conservation Officer Service website:

“Conservation Officers respond to conflicts with dangerous wildlife where there is a risk to public safety. Examples of these situations include responding to attacks, bears breaking into buildings, repeated dangerous wildlife encounters at or near public locations, and situations where dangerous wildlife has become habituated (no longer afraid of humans) or food conditioned (dependent upon human provided foods) and now presents a risk to public safety.

Conservation Officers do not respond to routine sightings, normal wildlife behaviour, such as wildlife transiting through greenbelts or forested areas, nuisance conflicts or conflicts that do not pose a risk to public safety, or to situations where the complainant can take simple measures to address the problem, such as securing garbage, removing bird seed, or properly managing compost.”

If there is an immediate threat to public safety, please call the Nootka Sound RCMP at 250-283-2227.

Thank You to Super Valu

Thanks so very much to SuperValu and Brad and Lynne Unger for bringing in my specialty food items to the grocery store. Shopping local and going to Campbell River only once a month has noticeably saved me $$$$!
Shopping local is the way to go!
