Would you adopt this cute little fellow? We did, one just like him.

The staff, friends and board members of the Cowichan Community Land Trust Society adopted “Bob Dole” in 1997. He was named by a visiting American scientist who commented “that looks to me like a particularly mean-spirited marmot”. Bob lives in the Haley Lake Ecological Reserve southwest of Nanaimo.

Please help save them from extinction.
