British Columbia is one
of the richest wildlife viewing areas in Canada, with diverse and extraordinary
creatures ranging from Aise Swallowtails, and Green Herons, to Trumpeter Swans.
British Columbia is a birder's haven. More than a million birds migrate on the
Pacific flyway, and thousands stop over or stay through the year.
year, virtually the entire global population of Pacific Gray Whales migrates along
the British Columbia Coast. All five Pacific salmon species migrate far into the
province's interior. The Fraser River, with its many tributaries, boasts the largest
salmon run in the world. Mountain Goats, Moose, Caribou, and Bighorn Sheep can
be seen browsing by the highway's edge. Cougar, Black Bear, Grizzly Bear and the
Kermode Bear grab even more attention.
