Fifty-three species of non-domestic mammals have been recorded within the boundaries of Algonquin Provincial Park. Of these, several are large, impressive mammals that many people hope to see while they are here - Moose, White-tailed Deer, Beaver, Black Bear,and Wolves usually top the list. Algonquin is unequalled in Ontario, perhaps even in North America, as a location for seeing Moose. The other species, although common, are usually more difficult to find in Algonquin's heavily forested terrain.

Our book, the Mammals of Algonquin Provincial Park provides detailed information on the biology and ecology of Algonquin's mammals and can be ordered from The Friends of Algonquin Park or bought at various locations within the Park.
