Pelicans to Polar Bears Pelicans to Polar Bears

Watching Wildlife in Manitoba

 Author: Catherine Senecal


 This is the first and only complete wildlife viewing guide to the province of Manitoba. Drawing on the expertise of wildlife and birding specialists, it presents accurate, detailed, season-specific information on 100 sites throughout the province.

Manitoba is not only the best place in the world to view polar bears and beluga whales, it is also one of the hemisphere's prime birding sites. Here, nature-lovers will find wetlands ranked among the best on the globe and habitats that attract a huge array of species, as well as the only free-roaming herd of wild wood bison outside the northern territories, and vast herds of tundra caribou. The province also boasts dozens of places to view deer, elk, moose and bears of almost every color.

With dozens of full-color maps, hundreds of images from some of Canada's top wildlife photo-graphers, and detailed background information on each site, Pelicans to Polar Bears will appeal not only to dedicated birders and naturalists, but also to those who value Canada's wild places.
