Banff National Park


banff-np-patchBanff National Park is Canada’s first national park and the world’s third. The park is 6,641 square kilometers and contains valleys, mountains, glaciers, rivers and forests. The wildlife here is vast ranging from weasels, pikas, ermine, otters, and bats, to elk, moose, lynx, cougars, grizzly and black bears. Banff has many corridor restoration projects ongoing. Wildlife corridors need to be preserved as more and more human development and use encroaches on the valley terrain. Wildlife movement is essential for all species to access available resources, to take advantage of seasonal changes in food and weather, to find denning sites and mates.
