Wildlife Viewing Tips

  • Use the right tools - A field guide, a pair of binoculars and a comfy pair of shoes are a good start.
  • Watch at dawn and dusk - This is the time when most wildlife species are active enough to view.
  • Keep your distance - Stay on established trails and maintain a distance that is comfortable for the wildlife.
  • Stay quiet - Move slowly and quietly to increase your chances of viewing wildlife, and to avoid stressing the animals you wish to watch.
