Wildlife Viewing Do's and Don'ts
While we cannot tell you exactly how to go about spotting all of Pinery's wildlife species, we can give you some pointers that will increase your chances of viewing wildlife during your stay at Pinery.
Ride a bike along the bike path and pull off to the side of the road often to stop, look and listen.
Walk silently along a trail and pause to sit at one of the many benchs for a few minutes. The key to seeing birds and animals is to be quiet and patient.
Binoculars can often help you get a closer look at many birds and mammals, but all that's needed is a keen eye and ear.
Never touch or capture any wildlife. Adult animals often leave their young alone while they forage for food. Once in captive care, many animals will die as we cannot provide all of the requirements for them to live.
Never harass or chase wildlife. Many animals will die from the stress of even a short chase. Dogs that are not kept on a leash often kill several deer simply from chasing them until the deer collapse in exhaustion.
