Notice from BC Parks; Sept 6/19


ATTENTION: With the recent increase in wildlife activity in and around Vargas Island Provincial Park, BC Parks is advising park users to adhere to the following;
 
  • Be extremely mindful about how food is stored, always use food caches where possible and have equipment to hang food in the event food caches are full. Please note, Kayak hatches are NOT a suitable place to store food as wolves have learned how to get into kayak hatches. Unlawfully storing food and/or garbage may result in an eviction or violation ticket under section 33.1 of the Wildlife Act.  
  • Due to high frequency of wildlife coming into campsites during the night, BC Parks is advising against campers sleeping outside their tents.
  • Park visitors are advised to not bring pets to Vargas Island or Flores Island. Dogs are a high level attractant to wolves and other large carnivores. Protect your pet – keep them at home.
 
Do not attempt to get in close proximity to wildlife, specifically large carnivores. Please do your part when recreating in the backcountry and help keep wildlife wild.
 
If you encounter an aggressive wild animal, report it by calling the Conservation Officer Service 24-hour hotline toll free at 1-877-952-7277 (RAPP) or #7277 on the Telus Mobility Network.

Increasing number of animals in Vargas Island is very good for the public living there. One of my friend also lives there and shared this blog with me to know the specification and beautiful natural atmosphere of this Island.
