People come from all over the world to Canada to see animals that we take for granted. When it comes to Quebec, we're not only filled with amazing people but awesome wildlife too. And because we are so proud of fellow, natural neighbours, there are some incredible places in Quebec to see animals.
I remember a friend who was once in town and couldn't get over the sight of a coyote. It's easy to forget that what we see every day is incredibly exciting that isn't lucky enough to have at home.
That being said, there are so many animals here in Canada, and especially in Quebec, that I would love to see.
And even though the world thinks that Canada is filled with moose roaming the streets, we can all admit that seeing an actual moose would get any Canadian excited.
So if you're like me and are looking to find somewhere close by that will help give you a new appreciation for the unbelievable animals here in Quebec, here's a list of six spots in Quebec to see wildlife.
