Living With Wildlife
Have a question about the wildlife that is - or isn't - in your backyard?
Can't identify that bird/insect/salamander?
Mass Audubon can help! As one of the major open land stewards in New England, we have a wealth of expertise about the wildlife of Massachusetts.
Certain questions are asked frequently, so we have created a list of common topics and answers (see Common Questions Answered).
If your question isn't answered there, feel free to Ask the Wildlife Expert!
The purpose of these pages is to deliver helpful, consistent, and above all, correct information about living with wildlife. The management solutions listed are those that have been tested by government agencies, humane societies, and homeowners and found to be the most successful. We encourage you to use these strategies rather than spend time and money on options that do not work or are, at best, temporary.
