Tatshenshini-Alsek Wilderness Provincial Park, Yukon, Canada

Year: 2013 Taken by: Peter Prokosch
Tatshenshini-Alsek Park or Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Wilderness Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada (9,580 km²). It was established in 1993 after an intensive campaign by Canadian and American conservation organizations to halt mining exploration and development in the area and protect the area for its strong natural heritage and biodiversity. The park is situated in the very northwestern corner of British Columbia bordering the American State of Alaska and the Canadian Yukon Territory. It nestles between Kluane National Park and Reserve in the Yukon and Glacier Bay and Wrangell-St. Elias National Parks and Preserves in Alaska. It is part of the Kluane-Wrangell-St. Elias-Glacier Bay-Tatshenshini-Alsek park system, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
