British Columbia has more than 1,100 different wildlife species and some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world.
Spotting wildlife in BC can take place at unexpected times and places. Hiking, boating and even driving BC’s highways present opportunities for wildlife viewing. Bighorn sheep, moose, mountain goats, bears, whales, and sea lions are a few of the wildlife species that can be seen here.
For the best experience, consider a professionally guided wildlife tour. Trained guides and naturalists take visitors into natural environments safely, informatively and in comfort.
