Helping residents of the metro Atlanta area resolve conflicts with wildlife through technical guidance, on site response, and education and outreach.

The Urban Wildlife Program is dedicated to helping metro Atlanta residents resolve conflicts with wildlife, prevent conflicts before they start and promote desired wildlife habitat and conservation in backyards.

The program provides proactive outreach and education efforts, situation-specific technical assistance, and onsite response to emergencies. As more people move to suburban and urban areas, fostering an appreciation and understanding of wildlife will help minimize conflicts.

The Urban Wildlife Program provides technical assistance and education and outreach to 9 core counties of metro Atlanta: Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale.
