  • British Columbia

    I can't claim to have even scratched the surface of British Columbia. But I can claim to have visited Vancouver Island three times. I spent 3 nights there in late May 2006, primarily to try to see a Grey (or Gray in the local vernacular) Whale, and went back in August 2010 for a couple of nights to look for the critically endangered Vancouver Island Marmots.

  • New Brunswick

    I visited New Brunswick's Grand Manan Island in July 2006 to try to see a Northern Right Whale. Northern Right Whales are critically endangered with only a few hundred animals left and they can be seen in the Bay of Fundy reliably from mid August through October. Humpbacks, Minkes, Atlantic White-sided and White-beaked Dolphins, Fin Whales and Harbor Porpoises are all regular too, though the White-sided Dolphins don't arrive until later in the summer.

  • Newfoundland

    In October 2008 I scored a work trip to Newfoundland. I only had 24 hours to look for wildlife, and of course I just scratched the surface. But I had enough time to say that the guide books are right when they talk about the dramatic beauty of the island, and the friendliness of Newfoundlanders.

  • Nova Scotia

    I spent a weekend in Nova Scotia in mid-October 2008. I was in Canada for work and wanted to see North Atlantic Right Whales. But the whale watching operators on Grand Manan Island - the best place to see this species - had closed. One operator in Nova Scotia - Tom Goodwin from Ocean Explorations

  • Nunavut Including Baffin Island

    In 1999 the new Canadian province of Nunavut was carved out of what was then the North West Territories. It is an extraordinary place: one of the few places I've been that makes the Australian outback feel crowded. Nunavut covers about a fifth of Canada (so its about the same size as Western Europe) but has a population of just 29,000 people, 85% of whom are Inuit. There are about six trees, otherwise the entire province is tundra.

  • Ontario

    In July 2012 I spent a weekend with Fiona Reid at her place in Milton, just south-west of Toronto for a weekend's mammaling with my kids. And at the end of March 2013 I went to Algonquin Provincial Park for aweekend in search of Eastern Wolves, returning and succeeding in March 2015.

  • Quebec

    have spent a few days mammal watching in Quebec. I drove from Quebec City to New Brunswick, and then back from Maine to Quebec City, in July 2006, when I saw a Groundhog just over the border near Lac-Mégantic. In March 2013 I visited Parc du Bic, and returned there in October 2013 when I also went to the Gaspé Peninsula and whale-watched on the St Lawrence out of Tadoussac.

  • Yukon

    Although I'd long wanted to visit Alaska, somehow the Yukon hadn't featured on my radar of places to go mammal watching. But when I began planning a trip to Canada in 2006, and started reading about the province and its wildlife, I realised how much there was to see. It is huge, very sparsely populated, shares much of the Alaskan fauna, and probably has a more extensive road network than its US neighbour.
