Waterton Lake, Alberta, Canada 08

Description : There are more than 234 species of birds, 57 species of mammals and 17 species of fish sighted in this area. Waterton serves as a wildlife refuge as the landscape has been protected from the ravages of industry, logging, mining, oil and gas exploration and ranching. In recent years botanists have recorded some 900 different species of wild flowers in Waterton, more than half the number of species in all of Alberta. Prairie plants mix with alpine plants, plants from west of the continental divide mix with plants from east of the continental divide and plants that are not found anywhere else in Canada abound in the area.
