Wildlife of Prince Rupert

This is a place where eagles, bears, and whales outnumber people and the area has over 10,000 years of First Nations history, clearly evoked in the Museum of Northern British Columbia.

Nearby the Khutzeymateen Provincial Park occupies a beautiful and remote valley that has earned world-wide fame for its prolific population of grizzly bears.
