Waterton’s variety of plant communities does more than beautify the landscape. It also provides homes for many animals, including over:
- 60 species of mammals
- 250 species of birds
- 24 species of fish
- 10 species of reptiles and amphibians
In fact, no other national park in Canada protects so much wildlife within such a small area (195 sq. miles). Strike out on your own or take in one of the many guided tours available. In all cases,educate yourself to stay safe and informed, especially where Waterton’s many carnivores are concerned.
