What you can do to help stop animal abuse
Did you know that local shelters and rescue agencies-large and small–always have a great selection of animals looking for loving forever homes? You can find cats and dogs, birds, small animals and sometimes even horses and livestock! In fact, any animal available for sale at a pet store or from a breeder is probably waiting for adoption in a nearby shelter or rescue.
Every day, wildlife and pets are in danger of being poisoned when homeowners, businesses or exterminators choose to use anticoagulant rodenticides, also known as rat poisons, to control rodents.
Delta is a premier birding area located on the Fraser River Estuary and Boundary Bay. It is a vital stopover on the Pacific Flyway. The Ladner Christmas bird count is often the highest in Canada with over 140 species.
Delta’s position in the Fraser estuary gives it a great diversity of animal life. This brochure shows a selection of mammals, reptiles, and amphibians, plus a marsupial and a freshwater crayfish, that you might spot in this area. Some animals are common and easily seen or heard; others are uncommon, nocturnal, or well-hidden in their habitat.
