The Log

Many wildlife can be seen day or night. A wild animal that is active during the day may be normal and healthy.

  • Some wildlife may adapt their behaviors to be more active during the day and closer to humans.
  • These animals may be searching for food, rearing young, or seeking mates.
  • Humans can attract wildlife by providing resources (e.g. food) – sometimes without even knowing it.

As the human population grows, human-wildlife interactions and wildlife sightings may increase.
