Wildlife

It is often hard to believe when you are standing in bustling downtown Vancouver that there is a great diversity and abundance of wildlife on your doorstep.

Vancouver is situated on the banks of the Fraser River and its large estuary, where the river meets the Pacific Ocean. Originating in the Rocky Mountains, it is the largest river in British Columbia bringing 20 million tons of sediment to the ocean each year.

This sediment creates nutrient-rich waters supporting a huge diversity of life. Tens of millions of salmon return to the river each year attracting a variety of predators, including seals, sea lions, bald eagles, and of course our resident killer whales.
