British Columbia Travel Guide
The unofficial BC Travel & Tourism Guide
Wildlife
People from every country have come to realize the preeminent importance of the natural world, and many are drawn to BC, not only for its wonderful scenery but also for its great variety of wildlife. The diverse topography and climatic regions provide habitat for a huge variety of animals. From humpback whales and spotted salamanders, to bighorn sheep and variegated wood peckers, those interested in wildlife viewing could spend months or years roaming the province observing the fascinating ways of our animal brethren. Temperate rainforests, massive river systems, thousands of lakes, desert valleys, high plateau forests, tundra plains and alpine expanses just begin to describe the natural richness of the province. Many regions of the province are represented in significant national, provincial and regional parks, and human impact in these areas is severely limited. In other areas, relatively sparse populations have allowed many species to thrive alongside human development. From seals plying the waters of urban Vancouver, to herds of elk in the Purcell Wilderness, BCs animal wonders will exceed your expectations. Remember many parts of B.C. are bear country. Be prepared! Learn as much as you can about bear behaviour before venturing into their terrain. Never feed a bear, intentionally or even unintentionally (by improperly disposing of garbage). Bears have a keen sense of smell and can detect a barbecue or picnic from a considerable distance. Do not approach bears, take photos from a distance and keep pets under control. Always be alert and bear aware. With your cooperation, bears and people can coexist in harmony. Learn more at Get Bear Smart.
