If you’ve seen the poster for our photo contest and you’re wondering why this small, non-profit organization fundraises, well…
Although a portion of the UWSS’s research in Oak Bay and Esquimalt is funded by the province and/or the district, much of our work is dependent on donations and the support of people, like you, in our community.
Fundraising and donations are important elements that allow us to (among many other things):
- Raise public awareness on how to reduce human-deer conflict,
- Provide over 1,500 “Caution Expect Deer” signs and;
- Expand on our cutting-edge research.
One fun way you can get involved is by entering our first ever photo contest! Whether a seasoned shutterbug or new behind the camera, we want to see the natural world through your eyes.
