North Central Rockies forests

WWF Abstract

The North Central Rockies Forests ecoregion includes some of North America's best known and loved wild areas, including the Rocky Mountain parks of Alberta and British Columbia, Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness complex in Montana, and the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness in Idaho. This mountainous ecoregion, which stretches roughly 600 miles (960 km) from north to south, is home to cougars, grizzly bears, moose, and wolverines. It is also one of the few places on Earth you can find woodland caribou, the only species of caribou able to live in areas of deep snow.
