It could be some time before we’re off exploring the Amazon Rainforest, snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, or even spotting wildlife on safari. However, there are a lot of amazing wildlife trips to take in North America!

There are a lot of animals in North America ranging from bison in Yellowstone to monkeys in Costa Rica.
