The wildlife in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast is as varied and diverse as the landscape.
From lush coastal forests to the interior grasslands and mountain ranges, a wide variety of wildlife viewing opportunites can be experienced in this region.
Take a wildlife tour to the Great Bear Rainforest - one of National Geographic Traveler's 2013 "World's Best Trips" - and the only area in the world where the rare white Kermode (Spirit) bear is found. Marine life thrives here – a BC Ferries Discovery Coast ferry trip or one of many cruising adventures can provide memorable wildlife sightings.
The interior grasslands, plains and mountain ranges provide ideal habitat for bears, moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goats and bird life. A guided tour from Whitegold Adventures in Wells is an excellent introduction to the wildlife, history and scenery for which the area is famous. It’s even possible to snorkel with salmon with Kynoch Adventure Tours near Bella Coola.
