Alberta's provincial mammal -- the Bighorn Sheep -- embodies the ruggedness of the high-altitude land it inhabits. The Rocky Mountains comprise one of Alberta's six distinct Natural Regions, making the province a hub for wildlife. Though thousands of animals call Alberta home, this beautifully illustrated collection of 140 of the most common and familiar mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, and insects covers the vast majority of what you are likely to encounter in your explorations and learning forays. The ecoregion map featuring over 20 wildlife-viewing hotspots is especially useful. Laminated for durability, the folding pocket guide Alberta Wildlife is the ideal companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and wildlife enthusiasts. Made in the USA.
