Wildlife Watching

Wildlife Watching in Maine

It’s hard to explain what it’s like here, to see the beauty of the wildlife, in their natural habitat. And it’s even more difficult to explain how it feels, when it’s happening all around you. Because when you come to Maine, you’re not just an observer of life here. You’re part of it. The symphony of Maine’s wildlife plays throughout every part of the state, in every season. ...Read more

It’s hard to explain what it’s like here, to see the beauty of the wildlife, in their natural habitat. And it’s even more difficult to explain how it feels, when it’s happening all around you. Because when you come to Maine, you’re not just an observer of life here. You’re part of it.

The symphony of Maine’s wildlife plays throughout every part of the state, in every season. And the best part is, just like most other things here, it’s unscripted and authentic.

You might have come to the harbor for a whale-watching expedition, or perhaps hiked to the western mountain region to catch a glimpse of a 1000-pound moose. Or maybe you came to see one of Maine’s 500 pairs of bald eagles flying between the oceanfront cliffs. Whatever it is you came to see, you’ll likely get to see it here in Maine.

And when their performance unexpectedly begins – when the majestic creatures appear before your eyes, and you pause to observe every peaceful movement they make – time stands still.

In that timeless moment, when you feel a bond with nature that pulls you into the place you’re from, you’ll realize you belong here too.

You’ll find those moments in abundance here, in any season, on any path.
