British filmmaker Bertie Gregory was one of the lucky ones: He saw coastal wolves—also known as sea wolves—in 2011.

"There is something about being in the presence of a coastal wolf—they just have this magic and aura around them," he says.

Chris Darimont, science director at the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, has studied the carnivores' unusual lifestyle for nearly two decades.

There are two populations: mainland coastal wolves and coastal island wolves, the latter being the focus of Gregory’s quest.

“The mainland coastal wolves are every bit as 'coastal,' though they do eat less seafood compared to those on islands," Darimont says.

Their genes prove it; collectively, coastal island wolves have distinct DNA that sets them apart from interior wolves, according to a 2014 study published in BMC Ecology. »
