Wildlife predation on livestock and damage to crops are a concern of farmers. The Province of Nova Scotia has developed this program to address some of these concerns.
This program compensates registered Nova Scotia farmers who experience damage to specified agricultural products caused by specific wildlife species. It will compliment crop insurance plans that list wildlife as an insurable peril as well as operate on its own for farmers who do not currently have insurance.
For more information, please review the Wildlife Compensation Program Brochure.
