Living With Wildlife

At the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), one of our criteria for the conservation of natural areas is to connect wildlife corridors and give species, such as grizzly bears, a place to live and roam. The Crowsnest Pass is one example of a region where NCC and other organizations have worked to create a network of larger protected areas and supply wide-ranging mammals with natural habitat.

Much like the Crowsnest Pass, areas like the Bow Valley are learning how to manage wildlife and human interactions. Living With Wildlife is a documentary project created by local filmmaker Leanne Allison from Canmore, Alberta, to showcase how humans and animals are trying to coexist together in his popular tourist town.

This documentary was supported by NCC, The Calgary Foundation, Town of Canmore, Alberta Environment and Parks, Yellowstone to Yukon, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and a handful of private donors and was produced by WildSmart.
