Bald Eagles in a tree
Though Vancouver is a large metropolitan city, wildlife thrives its countless green spaces and parks.
Vancouver lies between mountains and ocean and shares its space with geese, herons, eagles, hawks and countless squirrels and chipmunks. Larger creatures such as raccoons, skunks and the occasional coyote can sometimes also be seen.
For those looking to escape the city for a few hours, whale-watching and marine wildlife tours depart or pick up from various locations in and around the city. Bear-watching tours and bird watching are other popular activities available just outside of Vancouver.
For self-guided wildlife experiences, explore Vancouver’s famous parks and beaches which are just minutes away from downtown.
