The fau­na in Jasper is abun­dant, Parks Cana­da works hard in the back­ground in con­serv­ing the ecol­o­gy of Jasper Nation­al Park. Take you time in Jasper and look around, watch your speed when dri­ving, nev­er know when a stam­pede can pop out from the road­side or a large ani­mal want­i­ng to cross. Do not stop in the mid­dle of the road, pull off to the side in a safe man­ner. Take pre­cau­tions while walk­ing or hik­ing the trails, these are wildlife and not breed­ed for pet­ting. Enjoy your time in Jasper and nev­er feed the wildlife.
