Great Bear Rain Forest

I had the privilege of spending a week with the Gitga'at, visiting the Great Bear Rain Forest and the amazing wildlife.  The focus of our trip was to see the elusive Spirit Bears.  Spirit bears, a sub-species of the black bear, are only found on the west coast of British Columbia.  There are thought to only be 3-4 hundred spirit bears.  We also had the opportunity to observe; black bears, bald eagles, humpback whales, martens, stellar sea lions, american dippers and blue jays.  We tried to find the elusive coastal wolves but although there were a couple of distant sightings, curiosity did not get the better of the wolves.  I'll certainly hope to be back to see more...

I hope you enjoy seeing the pictures and watching the video clips.
