Protecting a farm from damage by wildlife is part of a farm’s risk-management activities. The Wildlife Damage Protection Program provides assistance to protect:
- market gardens;
- orchards; and
- pasture lands.
- Agricultural non-profits.
Examples of activities include:
- Installing game-fencing materials (posts and wire) that stand at minimum 7-feet (2.1-metres) high;
- Wildlife-proofing crop-storage facilities;
- Purchasing crop- and livestock-protection measures, such as propane cannons, livestock guardian dogs, wolf silhouettes, electric fencing, etc.; and
- other activities designed to prevent damage to agriculture crops, livestock and fencing by wildlife.
