North America { 6 galleries }

Yellowstone was the world's first national park and remains as iconic and beautiful as ever. It supports significant populations of large mammals, with the Lamar Valley in particular being renowned, at various times of the year, for herds of Bison and Elk and consequently Wolves also. Indeed this area, in the park's north-east corner, is sometimes likened to a North American equivalent to the Serengeti.

The Pacific north west (Alaska and British Columbia) support one of the largest and richest remaining tracts of unspoiled temperate rainforest left in the world, an area of towering conifers, swirling sea mists and luxuriant growth of mosses and lichens all stir a sense of timelessness. The region is home to grizzly bears, black bears, and spirit bears, the latter an almost mythical animal that wanders ghost-like through the forest and is rarely seen. While numerous species of whale swim and feed in near off-shore waters. Particularly, renowned are groups of humpback whales that communally ‘bubble-net’ feed on shoals of herring and other bat fish.
