There is an abundance of wildlife in Yoho National Park which you may
catch a glimpse of during your visit. Large mammals are often the most
impressive animals to see, but those with a keen eye will be rewarded
by the multitude of small mammals, birds, and insects that make Yoho National
Park their home. The best times to see animals are early in the morning,
or later in the evening.
Golden Mantled Ground Squirrel
The Pika builds its home in the many rock piles of Yoho National Park. This small adorable animal spends the summer foraging vegetation to form a 'hay pile' for the winter ahead. Their stash allows them to remain active underneath the snow during the winter months, as Pikas do not hibernate.
