Wildlife viewing on our highways is free. Black bear and foxes peer out from the forest. Wood bison, the larger northern relative of the plains bison, are making a comeback near Fort Providence and Fort Liard. You often encounter them on our highways – it is wise to stop and let them cross the road in their own time. They are extremely large and dangerous if provoked.
Moose and woodland caribou live in the woods and wetlands all along our highways. Bald eagles and tall, dusty-grey sandhill cranes are two easily spotted species spending the summer in the Dehcho area, together with ducks, gulls and terns, warblers and other songbirds.
