Where in the world can you find a white black bear? Here, in the British Columbia mainland coastal forests. From minks and mountain goats to spotted owls and river otters, a variety of wildlife fills a range of habitats. Low-elevation coastal forests, steep-sided valleys, inlets, and fjords all provide important refuges for this ecoregion's abundant wildlife, which also includes the black-tailed deer, moose, woodland caribou, and fox.
