Living in harmony with wildlife

In Montréal, there is a strong demand to maintain and increase biodiversity and opportunities for contact with nature, and rightfully so. Nature in the city has  many benefits for the community (in French).

However, challenges also emerge. Plant and animal species that we share living space with can be perceived negatively, as they can be a nuisance to some people. However, implementing measures for harmonious cohabitation can reduce or eliminate these nuisances.
