Staying Safe

Wild animals are often unpredictable; follow the tips below to stay safe.

Keep your distance – many wild animals can be dangerous, respect their space.

Stay alert – many incidents between people and wildlife occur when they meet by accident, be particularly careful when viewing spawning fish as both Black and Grizzly Bears are often found nearby.

Caution around young wildlife – mothers are often very protective and can be quite aggressive, especially bears and Moose.
