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.

Polar Bears (Ursus maritimus) are extremely well adapted to the cold with 60% of their plummeting global population living in Canada's arctic. 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. Immediate international and Canadian action on climate change is needed for the ongoing survival of this iconic animal.

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.
