National Geographic puts spotlight on B.C.’s enigmatic sea wolves

…Unlike their inland counterparts that hunt deer and caribou, the sea wolves comb the beaches along B.C.’s iconic Great Bear Rainforest and, by and large, feed off the ocean. They can swim for miles between coastal islands and eat whatever the sea serves up. They are known to prey on salmon for several months out of the year, with fish making up 25% of their diet during the spawning season. They hunt seals and sea lions, chew on barnacles, turn up at herring spawning grounds and feast on whale carcasses.
