THE PLACE

Stretching along the west coast of Canada, the Great Bear Rainforest is a spectacular forest ecosystem - a rich, dense, primal rainforest of towering red cedars and full of life. Grizzly bears, black bears and their genetic variant, the rare white Kermode or 'spirit bear', also depend on the rainforest for their habitat.
