Full description
Join your professional guides and naturalists on an adventure into the hidden world of wildlife. They will show you trees that have been scarred by climbing bears, active nests of eagles and ospreys, and fields frequented by elk and wolves. While you can't be guaranteed you'll see animals, you greatly increase your chances by teaming up with an expert. The fun of this tour is its compelling mix of possibility mixed with hands-on experiences. Learn the current trends in wildlife research. What have we learned over the past decade? How are we finding ways to better coexist with the local wildlife population? Hands-on kits provided include an impressive collection of artifacts to add an additional level of excitement. An Intimate Wildlife Experience, Alberta is one of the only places in North America where prairie, boreal forest, and mountain ecosystems meet. As a result, Alberta is home to an abundance and variety of wildlife. More than 400 bird, 90 mammal, 18 reptile and amphibian, 50 fish, and 1800 wild flowering species can be found here.

Jacob was a great guide. He is very friendly, knowledgeable and funny. We only could see deer and bunnies, however, we had a great time and we would definitely do it again.
