On the lookout for beavers !
Algonquin Provincial Park is in southeastern Ontario, Canada. Its forests, rivers and numerous lakes, are home to moose, bears and common loons.
Over 2,400 lakes and 1,200 km of streams and rivers are located within the park. These were formed by the retreat of the glaciers during the last ice age.
The park is in an area of transition between northern coniferous forest and southern deciduous forest. This unique mixture of forest types, and the wide variety of environments in the park, allows the park to support an uncommon diversity of plant and animal species.
