Define Harassment

2012 • Posted by Kai @ 6:20 PM

It was not a good feeling to see people disputing each other while you taking pictures of the nature. Some people did not like birders, well, actually mostly photographers, go down to the marsh area to harass Snowy Owls. But until there is a by-law to prohibit people enter the intertidal zone at Boundary Bay, people will still go down there to chase around the birds.

How close is too close? It is true that everybody wants to take good photos, but not everybody can afford the extremely expensive big glass. The only way to achieve that is to get closer to the objects, and that is how wildlife harassment happens. My birding philosophy is to respect the wildlife as best as I can. If I have difficulty to take pictures then don’t do it, it is not a big deal.
