Spirit Bear

The Great Bear Rainforest is the largest temperate rainforest in the world and home to the rare and elusive spirit bear or Kermode bear. These white bears are not albino, but have a recessive gene that turns one in every ten bears pure white. This beautiful large male let me into his world allowing me to show the connection between an apex predator, the salmon, the forest and the ocean.
