ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the biodiversity observed by naturalists during their visit in Castle Wilderness, Alberta. Castle Wilderness is known for their increasing number of plants and animal species like fishes and butterflies. However, the federal and provincial government have been negligent in protecting the biodiversity of the place. They were not able to identify and record all the species endemic which might be at risk of extinction.
