Great Bear Rainforest
Ruth Bowman & Ken Faulks

The Great Bear Rainforest is one of the largest wilderness environments on earth and is found along the central and north coast of British Columbia.

The name Great Bear Rainforest comes from the vast number of Kermode, grizzly, and black bears that call this area home. The Kermode or Spirit Bear is a sub- species of black bear that is often born with a white or cream coloured coat. These bears are found exclusively in the Great Bear Rainforest.
