The monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) undergoes the most spectacular insect migration on earth. Monarchs lay their eggs only on milkweed, a plant that is both poisonous and very sensitive to chemical herbicides. Promoting pesticide-free farming, and protecting and planting milkweed will help preserve the monarch.

Mountain caribou is a subspecies of the woodland caribou, one of the three types of caribou in Canada. Historically, about 10,000 mountain caribou existed in BC, however industrial logging of their habitat has reduced their number to only 1,900. Mountain caribou need old-growth rainforest valleys for their survival.

Snowy owls (Bubo scandiacus) are powerful birds that primarily rely on lemmings for food. One of the largest owls in North America, the snowy owl has a wingspan of 1.5 metres. Its fluffy plumage helps maintain a body temperature of 38°C even when the air temperature is -50°C. Snowy owls are Arctic specialists, who only venture to southern Canada during times of food shortage.

Bohemian waxwings (Bombycilla garrulus) are nomadic, boreal forest birds that nest in northern bogs and muskegs. In winter, they travel in large flocks of up to 10,000 individuals searching for leftover tree fruit throughout much of southern Canada. Known as 'party' birds, bohemian waxwings often gorge themselves on berries causing a type of drunkenness and much revelry.

Polar bears (Ursus maritimus) are extremely well adapted to the cold. These immense carnivores can consume up to 20% of their body weight in food. However, fast melting sea ice is making it harder for polar bears to hunt for their principal food: ringed seals. Their global population is plummeting. Immediate international and Canadian action on climate change is needed for the ongoing survival of this animal.

Red-headed woodpeckers (Melanerpes erythrocephalus) are one of only four woodpeckers that cache their food, including nuts, seeds, fruit and insects, in trees for later use. With distinctive bright red heads and big personalities, this woodpecker's antics and aerodynamic fly-catching provide great entertainment. Their habitat in central and eastern Canadian provinces is threatened when the old trees in which they nest are cleared for development.
