How to see Canadian critters in their own natural environment

Whitehorse is the gateway city to the wilderness of Canada's Yukon Territory.

The entire Yukon is a wildlife sanctuary; where moose outnumber the humans two to one.

For those who want to be certain of seeing native creatures up close, the Yukon Wildlife Preserve features 700 acres of snowy hills, marshes, steep cliffs and flat lands that provide a perfect ecosystem for 11 species of northern Canadian mammals.

The Yukon Wildlife Preserve is not a traditional zoo or theme park.

Instead, the animals live in large, spacious enclosures that mimic their natural habitats, allowing them to live and behave as they would in the wild.

The preserve is committed to educating the public about wildlife conservation efforts and the importance of protecting northern Canadian wildlife.

Among the critters who might hope to see are bison, moose, mule, deer, woodland caribou, elk, mountain goats, Canadian lynx, and foxes.

The Preserve is located 25 minutes from downtown Whitehorse and visitors can walk, ski, snowshoe or fat-bike the five-kilometre viewing loop at their own pace, or jump on a guided bus tour.

Visitors wishing to take a bus tour are encouraged to book in advance to ensure availability.
