#CanadaC3 Fauna: Muskoxen Yesterday, we saw two muskoxen off the coast of Devon Island in Nunavut! We were especially excited to see musk oxen today, because 2017 marks 100 years since the hunting of muskoxen was banned in Canada (it was allowed again in 1970). 100 years ago, muskoxen were close to extinction as they were popular for their wool. Today, after years of efforts to protect the species, they are no longer listed as endangered.
