Birds, bees and salamanders on PAWS campus

Spring is here, and it is clearly visible in the wildlife community on the PAWS Campus in Lynnwood. While some animals are busy setting up their breeding territories and identifying potential nest and den sites, others are embarking on a journey. Where once there was near silence, there is now a cacophony of voices, all joining in the excitement of the season.

As wildlife breeding activity increases, so does the frequency of human/wildlife conflicts. Even if you are not currently experiencing a conflict, you can visit the Common Problems page on the PAWS website. The more you know about wildlife conflicts, the better prepared you will be to avoid them in the future.

Visit the wildlife section of the PAWS website if you would like to discover more about the work with the wild beings that surround us.
