The St. Malo and District Wildlife Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to wildlife conservation, education and promotion of hunting and fishing. The St. Malo and District Wildlife Association is an affiliate of the Manitoba Wildlife Federation, which consists of members from St. Malo, St. Pierre-Jolys, Otterburne, Grunthal, Sarto and passed area residents currently residing in Winnipeg.
The Two White Tailed Deer Statures were placed in recognition of the valuable volunteer assistance provided to the Department of Natural Resources by the St. Malo and District Wildlife Association and area residents.
The history dates back to between 1985 to 1988 when the first ever large scale urban deer relocation program in Canada took place. The program relocated 283 white-tailed deer that were captured and moved from the city of Winnipeg to the St. Malo Wildlife Management Area and surrounding region. Dedicated residents provided assistance and equipment to aid in the transportation of the deer through countless volunteer time as well as financial resources which helped to establish the St. Malo and Rat River Wildlife Management Areas.
