Wildlife Viewing Nature & Wildlife

Alberta is teeming with wildlife. Five national parks and more than 250 provincial parks and easily accessible natural areas protect almost 600 species. Watch for Alberta's all-stars: moose, bison, elk, grizzly and black bears, bighorn sheep and mountain goats. You may even spot the elusive wolf, cougar, wolverine, lynx or bobcat. And for all you birders, Alberta is the only place in North America where prairie, boreal forest and mountain ecosystems coexist, providing a home to hundreds of species. Intersecting migratory flight paths make spring and fall birdwatching heaven on earth. Watch for flocks of golden eagles in autumn and trumpeter swans in spring.
