The Great Bear Rainforest is a massive and diverse ecological system with an area spanning the westcoast from northern Vancouver Island to southeast Alaska. Intricately linked as ocean, mountain, and forest where 1000 year-old cedars tower over fjords and granite, The Great Bear Rainforest is home to the rare white Spirit Bear.
If you’ve been watching the news this week you no doubt came across the report of a bear attack near Timmins, Ontario resulting in serious injuries to a 30-year old man, the death of his dog, and the resulting death of the bear. The story is horrible as it is rare and we’re thankful the story didn’t end with the man’s funeral.
While the bears have been in a deep slumber, the elves at Get Bear Smart have been busy preparing for the upcoming season. We're set to launch our Bear Smart Restaurant program; expand our reach with enhanced social media and digital communications; continue work on our habitat replacement program; and last but not least, we've created 112 pages of pure bruin joy.
