Part of the adventure of travel involves seeing animals. Whether it is a moose or a vole, people always talk about the wildlife they see in the countryside or near a highway. Local knowledge plus an understanding of animal behaviour and habitats are keys to spotting animals. In addition, animal watchers need to develop a quiet step and a keen, patient eye. Once these have been mastered, the reward is often a great view or photograph of animals at work or play in the wilderness.
