Natural Region Description

Willmore represents some of the last unexploited range of many wildlife species in Alberta - almost 20% of Alberta's mountain goats and bighorn sheep are found here. Other wildlife includes grizzly bears, mountain caribou, cougars and wolves. The windswept front ranges in the eastern part of Willmore are critical winter habitat for ungulates. Elevation ranges from 300 metres in the northeast to over 1500 metres in the southwest. Some peaks along the Continental Divide exceed 3050 metres. Resthaven Ice Field extends into Willmore from Jasper National Park.
