Wildlife Viewing Nature & Wildlife

Alberta’s five national parks and more than 250 provincial parks protect nearly 600 species of wildlife. On any given road trip or hike – even a stroll through a mountain town – expect to see something wild. You might even spy a local all-star: moose, bison, elk, grizzlies and black bears, bighorn sheep and mountain goats. • Good to know: You’re extra lucky if you spot an elusive wolf, cougar, lynx, bobcat or wolverine. • Pro tip: Golden eagles search for prey in the northern forests and on the prairies. Flocks of trumpeter swans, an at-risk species, can be spotted in spring, especially on water in the Grande Prairie area.
