Nature & Wildlife

How does a baby mountain goat hover on the sheer face of a mountain? It's crazy. Alberta is bursting with weird (looking at you, wolverine) and wild species. Grizzlies, black bears, moose, elk, bison, bighorn sheep, lynx and wolves are among the 587 critters around these parts. Need to know: Make sure your camera is charged and your friends are on alert. You never know who might be ambling by for a photo op. Long-term planning: With 8.2 million hectares (a.k.a. quite a lot) of protected space, Alberta's wildest inhabitants have room to frolic.
