In honour of Canada150, HWW presents... The Snowy Owl!

Celebrate Canada150 with HWW!

In honour of our country’s 150th Anniversary, Hinterland Who’s Who is releasing special videos about some of our most iconic wildlife and their impact on our country’s history and culture.
The last featured species is the Snowy Owl! There are few creatures that symbolize the beauty and ruggedness of Canada’s Arctic as well as this majestic white bird.  While it is well adapted to life in -50°C, some individuals will migrate to southern Canada for the winter months. Throughout history, the Inuit peoples of Canada have shared territory with Snowy Owls, and because of that, these owls appear in their legends, art and traditions.

To discover the North American Bison, the Atlantic Cod, the Pacific Salmon, the North Atlantic Right Whale, the Beaver and view some of our videos in Indigenous languages, visit our special Canada150 page!
In 2017, stay tuned to celebrate Canada's 150th!
