Wildlife Resources

As the third most densely populated state in the nation, Massachusetts is familiar with the often unfortunate and inevitable conflicts that occur where people and animals inhabit the same areas. The growing human population and the development of previously undisturbed land impacts the quantity and quality of habitat vital to the survival of wildlife.

To address these issues and to ensure that Massachusetts remains on the forefront of progressive and humane management of its valuable wildlife species, The MSPCA promotes the Living With Wildlife philosophy: Through humane, long-term, and cost-effective resolutions of human-animal conflicts, we can achieve harmonious and peaceful coexistence between people and wildlife in urban, suburban, and rural Massachusetts’ communities, now and in the future.
