Nature & Wildlife

Alberta and Mother Nature share a wild streak. And we aim to keep it that way. Hundreds of species call Alberta home – 587 to be exact. Watch for Alberta’s all-stars: moose, grizzly and black bears, elk, bison, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, lynx, coyotes, wolves and wolverines. Protecting and conserving all wildlife and their habitats is important to Albertans. We have designated approximately 8.2 million hectares as protected areas. This includes Canadian national parks, provincial parks and recreation areas, wildlands and migratory bird sanctuaries. Our wild spaces give us the chance to look deep into nature and see something marvellous.
