The UWSS has two upcoming presentations. On Saturday, September 12, Oak Bay Councillor Eric Zhelka will be hosting his regular “Community Roundtable” and has invited the Urban Wildlife Stewardship Society President Bryan Gates to speak about deer.
Bryan is a former manager of wildlife resources for BC’s Ministry of Environment in the southwestern mainland and a retired registered professional biologist with four decades of experience who has lived in Oak Bay for 40 years.
Bryan worked in environmental management and impact assessment with the BC government for 23 years. His MSc thesis from UBC involved a four-year study of deer on Vancouver Island and during that time he captured and handled over 300 deer.
