Situated in the midst of a busy city, High Park provides a refuge for a variety of mammals. Some wildlife, such as squirrels and chipmunks, can be easy to see. Others, such as raccoons, skunks, opossums and bats, are present but mostly out of sight.
Located in the heart of Canada’s largest city, High Park, with its varied habitats, continues to support healthy populations of several mammal species. Most are residents but some are occasional visitors from nearby natural areas.
