The Animal Sign Guide to Saoyú-ʔehdacho National Historic Site
Many wildlife species can be seen in Saoyú-ʔehdacho National Historic Site. Animals use different habitats such as Sahtú (Great Bear Lake), river valleys, boreal forest, and wetlands. These areas offer food, shelter, breeding areas, and rest stops during long migrations. Large, iconic species like caribou, bears, and moose live in the site, but visitors may see others as well.
Most animals in Saoyú-ʔehdacho National Historic Site rarely encounter people, so they can be shy and often keep their distance from visitors. Some species are also well-camouflaged, nocturnal, or live in very remote areas of the site.
Visitors who are familiar with animal signs – tracks, scat, and other traces – have more opportunities to experience the site’s wildlife. Their observations can also help in avoiding unexpected and potentially unsafe wildlife encounters.
