When observing wildlife in person, keep these things in mind:

2. It's crucial to keep a safe distance and avoid any interactions that could potentially harm you or the wildlife.


What you might see:

The Banff National Park is home to hundreds of different species of wildlife. You may see bald eagles circling overhead, or one of 260 other bird species living here. Bears, moose, elk, wolves, and cougars roam the peaks and valleys. You may even see bighorn sheep bounding up the hillsides as you drive through the park's mountain roads.


Responsible wildlife viewing:

When observing wildlife, it’s important to remember that we are visitors in their home. Provide them with plenty of space and never give them food. In fact, it’s illegal to feed, touch or even approach wild animals. During certain times of year, areas may see closures to keep both you and wildlife safe. The Parks Canada website has plenty of information on wildlife safety and how you can do your part to help preserve the ecology of the park!
