Wildlife In Wellesley

Wildlife Sightings

A variety of wildlife make their homes in Wellesley's parks and open space areas. In order to be able to view and monitor some of the wildlife that calls Wellesley "home", the Natural Resources Commission has stationed two trail cameras within the Town on Natural Resource Commission property. We hope that you enjoy some of the images captured on our cameras and encourage you to send us some of your own to nrc@wellesleyma.gov.

Wildlife Concerns

Our wildlife neighbors enjoy the beauty of our natural resources as much as we do, and the NRC encourages residents not to disturb these animals. Most are not aggressive and will move on when they sense people in the area; please keep pets under control should you encounter wildlife. For additional tips, watch the informational video from NRC Environmental Education and Outreach coordinator Lisa Moore on Coexisting with Coyotes and Black Bears. 

If you notice abnormal behavior, it may indicate the animal is sick. Do not approach a wild animal! Contact Animal Control Officer Jennifer Smith at 781-235-1212 x7103.
