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.

Catherine has travelled extensively as a travel writer and photographer, exploring many parts of the world. Her shining achievement as an author is the best-selling guide Pelicans to Polar Bears: Watching Wildlife in Manitoba. Soon to be reprinted again, the book has been a Manitoba favourite since its release in 1999.

With over 100 sites, Catherine and a small team visited and researched most of the province. Her enthusiasm is evident "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. Come to see wild bison, vast herds of caribou, elk, moose, bears of every color phase and much more."

 Catherine lives in Winnipeg and looks forward to weekends with her son and husband at some of the notable nearby nature preserves.
