Muskwa-Slave Lake forests

WWF Abstract

Imagine witnessing thousands of caribou passing as you crouch behind a white spruce. Each year, large herds of caribou migrate through this ecoregion, which is home to one of North America's most diverse and intact concentrations of large mammals. Many large predators follow these herds, including wolves and brown bears. This ecoregion has so many large animals, both in species and individuals, that it has been called the "Serengeti of the Far North," after the famed plains of Africa.
