Native Mammal Gallery


These photos showcase some of the common and uncommon mammals that you’ll find on Prince Edward Island. A number of these species have been introduced by humans onto the Island in the last century or so; such as the raccoon, the skunk, the house mouse and rat. While others have migrated here as their populations spread eastward like the eastern coyote, which only arrived in PEI from New Brunswick during the early 1980′s.

PEI has also been home to a large amount of extirpation, or local extinctions. When europeans first arrived in PEI, there were reports of black bear, wolf, otters, lynx, caribou and more. Through hunting and habitat destruction, many species lost their place to live on this Island, although some rehabilitation programs, such as for the river otter, are being considered for the future.
