SPRINGFIELD — Spring and summer in Illinois bring a variety of human/wildlife interactions — and occasional conflicts. That’s why the Illinois Department of Natural Resources has partnered with the University of Illinois Extension Service to create and maintain the Living with Wildlife in Illinois website. The website is designed to be a helpful resource for Illinoisans who want to learn more about how to coexist with the wildlife of the state.

“Being close to nature is an amazing experience that everyone should enjoy, whether at a state park or in your own back yard. When those encounters become too close, we have an online resource accessible anytime to get important information. I encourage everyone to take a few minutes and see what the Living with Wildlife in Illinois website has to offer,” said IDNR Director Marc Miller.
The site is http://web.extension.illinois.edu/wildlife/. It includes information on how to prevent wildlife damage, native wildlife in the state, and contact information for IDNR wildlife staff, Conservation Police, and nuisance wildlife removal.

IDNR does not lend traps or remove wildlife from properties. Individuals in need of having wildlife removed can find a list of IDNR-licensed nuisance wildlife control operators through the Living with Wildlife in Illinois website. These private operators will remove nuisance animals from property or buildings, usually for a fee.
