Flora & Fauna
at Mount Washington Alpine Resort

Vancouver Island’s separation from mainland British Columbia by Johnstone and Georgia Straits means that many mammal species common to other parts of the province are not found on the Island. The endangered Vancouver Island Marmot is a creature especially close to our hearts who calls this mountain home.
