Nature in Canada
Canada’s remote north and extensive forests are home to wildlife, from bears, wolves, beavers, deer, mountain lions, and bighorn sheep to smaller animals like raccoons, otters, and rabbits. The country’s lakes and rivers contain about 20 percent of all fresh water on Earth.
Canada’s prairies in the south are home to bison and pronghorn antelope. Farther north are Canada’s sprawling evergreen forests, which have lots of wildlife, including moose and black bears. Even farther north is the cold, bare tundra, where herds of caribou and musk ox live.
Canadians work hard to protect the native wildlife. Canada has 41 national parks and three marine conservation areas.
