Wildlife Viewing

Sights and sounds of the wild.

Manitoba’s diverse landscapes means many different animals call our province home. Plus, with so many parks and accessible wilderness destinations, there are plenty of ways to view wildlife in a natural setting.

Watch polar bears and beluga whales in their northern habitats in Churchill. Bird watchers can witness the symphony of wings in flight during the fall migration season. Please be respectful and cautious when viewing wildlife – these are wild animals after all.
