Thousands of tourists make their way through Jasper National Park every year, a lot of the time for wildlife viewing. Each of them hopes to have a once in a lifetime opportunity to view some of Canada’s most precious wildlife species.

Although many of these animals can even be viewed on the sides of the roads and elk, often in the town or nearby outskirts, tourists must remember these are wild animals. Each of us who visits the park will drive through the amazing views of the Icefield parkways or the calming natural environment as you drive to Maligne lake, but we hope to educate on some unwritten wildlife viewing etiquette to keep the animals and tourists both safe.
