Living with Wildlife

The County Fish and Wildlife Committee, an advisory committee to the County Board of Supervisors, found that with the increase in homes built near open spaces, there has been an increase in negative interactions between humans and local wildlife. 

If you have unwanted wild animals in your backyard in Contra Costa County, the Wildlife Matrix provides a list of organizations that may be able to assist you.

The FWC published a 16-page booklet called “Wildlife in Your Backyard” that outlines common strategies used to prevent unwanted encounters with wildlife in urban neighborhoods.
