Birding & Bird watching. What’s the Difference?

Whale Watching & Marine Mammal Viewing

Vancouver Island Frog Migration

Vancouver Island Frog Migration:

The next time you have the opportunity to drive south from Campbell River on  the Inland Island Highway, take note that just past the Hamm Road connector, about 15 minutes south of Campbell River, the double fences paralleling the roadside on both sides of the highway.  These large elk and deer fences have short, tight mesh mini fences running along the base that are about 25 centimetres high and continue for quite a few kilometres south.
