When people think of a forest – they may think of deer and bears, but this rainforest boasts a large amount of wildlife – from loons, wolves, grizzly and black bears to killer whales, porpoises, otters and all 5 species of salmon. Air and water tours often provide great opportunity to catch a glimpse of the many native animals.
