Wildlife safety

Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site

You will not be alone in the wilderness. The chance to observe wild animals as they go about their natural lives is one of the most fascinating experiences that Canada’s national parks have to offer. Along with this opportunity, however, comes the responsibility to treat wild animals with the respect they deserve, and need.

All the wild animals you encounter in Kejimkujik are potentially dangerous if cornered, approached too closely, or harassed. This is especially important at Kejimkujik Seaside, where seals may come close to shore.

Do not feed any wildlife, and take care that your food and garbage are secured so as not to attract animals to your campsite.

Keep pets on a leash at all times.

Drive slowly.

Black bears and coyotes are present at the inland and coastal portions of Kejimkujik. Read You are in Bear Country and Coyotes and Hiking Safety or get the information at the Visitor Centre.
