Vancouver Island and the BC Gulf Islands offer a wide range of viewing opportunities for wildlife. From marine waters to mountain peaks, there is wildlife viewing to experience in every season.

The marine waters around Vancouver Island offer excellent whale watching, especially for orcas, and twice every year virtually the entire global population of Pacific Gray Whales migrates along the west coast of Vancouver Island. All five species of Pacific salmon migrate off the east and west coast of Vancouver Island to spawn in the rivers of British Columbia and Washington.

Over a million birds migrate on the Pacific Flyway, and thousands stop over or stay through the year, including a large spring migration of Brant Geese and wintering Trumpeter Swans. Strathcona Park on Vancouver Island is home to the endangered Vancouver Island Marmot, with a population of less than 200.
