Trappers Association of Nova Scotia Booth Program
T.A.N.S. has an established booth program that is interactive and educational to young and old, as well as the trapper and non-trapper.
Traveling to different events, directors display tanned pelts and plastic tracks, along with skulls and plastic scat of Nova Scotia’s fur-bearing species. Discussions at this booth involve the importance of trapping as a tool to manage fur-bearer populations, including the negative impacts that over-population can create. We also discuss dog proofing, humane trapping standards, and the importance of trapper/landowner relations.
Our booth not only promotes trapping but also answers many questions about the habits and biology of Nova Scotia’s fur-bearers.
T.A.N.S. is proud to use this booth program to educate and inform the public about Nova Scotia’s natural renewable fur-bearing species, as well as our ongoing commitment to this resource through sustainable humane trapping methods
