The Southfield City Council approved the establishment of a Wildlife Advisory Commission to ensure the safety, health and welfare of the residents and visitors to the City of Southfield as well as the many wild animals that live within Southfield’s borders.
The Wildlife Commission’s mission is to develop and propose a wildlife program and other recommendations to City Council as proper wildlife management requires a multidisciplinary and inter-governmental approach involving residents. The Commission is currently working to develop a wildlife program within the city that:
- Actively seeks and receives input from residents and others with concerns regarding wildlife in the City of Southfield;
- Works collaboratively with individuals of all points of view regarding wildlife in the City of Southfield;
- Works collaboratively with wildlife commissions or similar organizations in nearby communities regarding wildlife in or near the City of Southfield; and
- Works collaboratively with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and other county, state and federal entities responsible for wildlife management regarding wildlife in or near the City of Southfield.
