Blue jays (Cyanocitta cristata) are found in many of southern Canada's mixed wood forests, making them well-known to both wilderness campers and suburban dwellers. Their bold colour comes from the inner structure of their feathers, which are not actually blue, but appear so because of the way light reflects off of them.

The sea otter (Enhydra lutris), once extirpated from Canada’s Pacific coast due to overhunting, is once again prowling our coastal waters. As predators, their presence is key to maintaining the balance of the near-shore kelp ecosystems. Kelp forests hide them from hungry animals, like killer whales, sea lions and bald eagles.

An oil spill would threaten their continued recovery.

The tough little gray jay (Perisoreus canadensis) is found in northern forests all across Canada, and rightfully so because it’s Canada’s national bird. The jay is known by many names including whisky jack or Wisakedjak, the Algonquin word for a mischievous, transforming spirit who plays tricks on people. Rising temperatures due to climate change threaten this bird’s outdoor food storage system.

The hardiest of pollinators, the rusty-patched bumblebee (Bombus affinis), thermoregulates — generates heat by shivering — allowing it to withstand cold most other bees can’t tolerate. This bee has undergone a catastrophic collapse by 99 per cent in the past three decades in Canada. A ban on neonicotinoid pesticides is required if we’re going to give these bees a chance.

The tiny, solitary boreal owl (Aegolius funereus) is found in Canada’s vast boreal forest and high elevation mountains with subalpine forests. In the night, this bright-eyed owl comes alive. It waits on a perch for small mammals and birds before gliding down, talons outstretched, to grab a snack. Agriculture and logging impact their boreal home.
