FOX TRASH CAN APPEAL
 
 

Our Island fox population is recovering

 

...but they are now threatened by human interaction.

In 2014 alone, at least 25 foxes died from human interactions; a majority of these having to do with trash cans. 

Foxes are attracted to trash cans and sometimes get trapped inside. However, since many of the cans are located near rest stops and scenic lookouts, an even greater danger is the possibility of the fox being struck by a vehicle while running across the road to reach the trash cans.

 

You can make a difference today by helping us purchase animal-proof trash containers. 

These containers will better help humans and fox live together on the Island. 

Here is an image of a new trash can versus an old trash can.

Any size donation will help!
