BC has a lot of wildlife, with many natural areas set aside to protect it from hunting and development.

The BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure uses wildlife cameras to help confirm the effectiveness of its wildlife protection initiatives.

The cameras capture some pretty rare sights, like this cougar prowling in the Southern Interior in 2011.

Sea otters were nearly hunted to extinction during the European fur trade (1700's to 1800's).  They have the thickest fur of any mammal with 600,000 hairs per square inch.  This makes their fur very soft and quite waterproof.  Thankfully, measures were implemented to save these cute little marine mammals and we can still see them today.  They're tough to find in the wild as they are fairly small (about 4 feet long) and spend most of their time at sea.
