Wildlife Found in York Region
There are many opportunities to see wildlife in and around the York Region. The unique fauna of the area allows York to support a wide variety of wildlife. York also contains many ecosystems, many of which are situated within Toronto’s ravine system. The ravine system consists of rivers, streams, wetlands and forests. Many types of wildlife live within the region’s ravine system. Many other animals also live close to the city center in parks and urban green spaces. Some of the most common wildlife in the area that may be interested in your home include skunks, mice, raccoons, birds, bats, and squirrels.
The last thing you want is a family of raccoons or a wandering skunk. These unwanted neighbours can even find an empty space in your home to move into. Wildlife in your home can pose many health and safety risks. No one wants to be evicted, including furry tenants. Not only does wildlife feces carry the risk of serious illness, but these animals can become aggressive if cornered.
There are also plenty of nuisance wildlife species throughout Ajax and the surrounding areas, including squirrels, skunks and raccoons. While these animals are a very normal part of the fauna of any urban centre, they can still become a nuisance. Similar to other wildlife species, none of the aforementioned should be fed or approached for any reasons. This is because such actions will invite them to become accustomed to interactions with humans.
