Join Gary Schroyen for a video presentation on how to read animal signs. With emphasis on the Columbia Black-Tailed Deer, Roosevelt Elk, American Black Bear, Cougar and Vancouver Island Wolf. Open your eyes to a whole new world of animal communication. Once you learn these signs, your hikes will never be quite the same.

Gary is a naturalist, educator, citizen scientist, tracker and a vocal advocate of protecting wildlife and their native habitat. It's been said that he is somewhat of a local pioneer in the unique way in which he photographs wildlife with his homemade game cameras. Notable articles and contributions have been carried by Chek News, Sierra Club of BC, Black Press Media, CRD Parks and the BC SPCA. Based on his research, Gary was instrumental in helping to protect a critical wildlife corridor within the Sooke Hills. His thought provoking video presentation was arguably a pivotal force in the CRD's Board of Directors rejection of the Malahat Highway. expansion through a portion of the Sooke Hills.

The Coexisting with Carnivores Alliance (CwCA) is a non-profit organization that promotes coexistence between people, bears, cougars and wolves on southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia. We support communities in reducing human-carnivore conflicts by helping them to find solutions and build capacity to share the landscape with carnivores and by promoting tolerance and appreciation of bears, cougars and wolves.
