This grizzly bear cub was the runt of the litter. He seemed very please to end up with a whole salmon to himself and dragged it around for a while before stopping to feed. #grizzlybear #grizzly #cub #bear #bearsofinstagram #wildlife #wildlifephotography #greatbearrainforest #canada #mapleleafadventures

Grizzly bear family having dinner. The mother did not try to catch live salmon, instead just fished dead ones from the estuary. #grizzly #grizzlybear #cubs #salmon #salmondinner #greatbearrainforest #canada #mapleleafadventures #wildlifephotography #wildlife #bears #bearsofinstagram

Canada's Great Bear Rainforest is a magic spot, with jawdropping scenery and wildlife. It's where I snapped this pic, and also where I met the legendary naturalist @jackjeplant. Check out my podcast with Jack (link in bio) for all things GBR and some awesome stories about his encounters with spirit bears. Happy Monday mates!

Looking at me looking at you bud! Unlike black bears from other regions, some of these black bears are carriers of a recessive gene that can produce a white/blonde bear (Spirit bear). Preserving genetic diversity is crucial for the survival of any species. Something that is very difficult to do well in captivity. Hence the importance of conserving and protecting the few natural habitats that us humans haven’t cancerously invaded. In the long game, without a healthy home, these beautiful bears won’t stand a chance. Could you imagine having a stuffed teddy bear as a child, and looking at it like a mythical, once existed, dinosaur? #greatbearrainforest, #britishcolumbia, #canada. 09/2018.⁣⁣⁣ .⁣⁣⁣ .⁣⁣⁣ . ⁣⁣⁣ #firstnations #wondermore #wandermore #exploremore #earthfocus #canadaswonderland #imagesofcanada #earthofficial #awesome_earthpix #nikoncanada #explorecanada #opcmag #wildlifephotography #shotzdelight #adventureisoutthere #beautifulbc #natgeowild #nature #spiritbear #marvelouz_animals #blackbear #exclusive_wildlife #explorecanada #wildlifeplanet @paulnicklen @sea_legacy @earthfocus @natgeowild @pacificwild

Salmon fishing... this guy was really good at fishing. While it seemed wasteful that they only eat the brains, skin and roe if it's a female nothing goes to waste in the forest. Birds and other bears were scooping up the leftovers almost as fast as he was leaving them behind. #canon 5D Mark IV #tamron150600g2 #tamron

Sometimes nature tells you to turn around and take a break. In reality it’s a giant bear paw surrounded by puddles of water in the pouring rain, we deemed it too fresh to follow. Not that we minded hiking in the downpour, but we weren’t prepared for a bear encounter and Misty was acting strange so sometimes you just have to trust your gut! There is always next weekend for more hikes. 🐻🍂🌲 #autumn #animaltracks #animaltracking #getoutside #nature #hike #pnw #potd #exploreeverything #wanderlust #explorebc #bearpaw #greatbearrainforest #explorecanada #lovewhereyoulive #fall #rainyseason #earthofficial #planetearth #hellobc #weekendvibes #rainyday #iphonephotography

The skies are full of eagles and we couldn’t be happier! There are so many bald eagles in Port Hardy this time of year. We saw this guy multiple times sitting on a favourite lamp post waiting for the fishing boats to come in to dock. #cleverbird 🦅

Brown Bear Camp on Higgins Passage 52 28’30”N 128 45’21”W My third stay at this camp site and my third unsuccessful attempt at locating Kayak Bill’s “Higgins Pass Camp”. This camp offers tent sites as good as they get fronted by a beach full of barnacle-covered-fiberglass-eating rocks at low tide. These were in full bloom when I arrived. I tied up the boat, unloaded it and let the tide bring it to the high tide line. No reason to carry or drag it. Though this campsite has never posed a personal wildlife threat it got its name when its ursine namesake drove Denis Dwyer away on his last through-trip to Alaska. #REIEmployee, #OptOutside, #Kokatat, #WernerPaddles, #MountainHouse, #PeakSherpa, #HammerGel, #PROBAR, #BCMarineTrails, #WildCoastMagazine, #exploreBC, #AdventureKayakMagazine, #PaddlingMagazine, #PacificWild, #hellobc, #3meterswell, #TheWildCoast, #GreatBearRainForest, #BCCentralCoast, #BCFerries, #BCNorthCoast, #HigginsPassage, #PriceIsland, #SwindelIsland, #KayakBill, #KayakBillHigginsPassCamp, #Goo Ewe, #Klemtu2PortHardy2017, #KitasooTraditionalWaters, #Klemtu2007,

9 years ago, I started this endeavour of working on the ocean. What started out as my first job ever to make money for paying off university has now turned into an obsession and lifestyle. It’s moments like these that make every single part of the crazy journey worth it. Where the land meets the sea of the west coast of BC is my favourite place on earth... and no I did not touch the humpback whale, even though I desperately wanted to. 📷 - @kyleartelle . . . . . . #bluewateradventuresbc #greatbearrainforest #pnw #pnwonderland #beautifulbc #britishcolumbia #yesnbc #sailing #westcoast #explorebc #explorecanada #seekthewild #whale #humpbackwhale #ocean #travel #lifeofadventure #pnwcollective #thegreatoutdoors

Beberapa waktu yang lalu saya berkesempatan untuk mengunjungi Great Bear Rainforest di Canada. Lansekap yang terbentang seluas 6.5 juta hektar ini meliputi hutan dan peraian. Disana saya belajar banyak tentang pengelolaan SDA oleh masyarakat adat. Foto ini diambil di @spiritbearbc di Klemtu, sebuah usaha pariwisata yang dikelola masyarakat adat Kitasoo. Kalau menginap disini, tamu disuguhi berbagai paket wisata alam, mulai dari trekking melihat beruang sampai memancing ikan salmon. Tapi untuk bisa nginep disini harus book jauh-jauh hari dan bayar biaya yang ngga murah. Penghasilan dari bisnis ini lalu mengalir kembali untuk melindungi areal Great Bear Rainforest. Hebat yah. #latepost #GreatBearRainforest #nofilter

It’s been awesome to get back up to the Great Bear Rainforest and reconnect with friends and the landscape from when we made STAND. I have spent the last week on #Habitat with @iantmcallister mcallister and the @pacificwild team traveling the Great Bear to shoot educational content in virtual reality to plug into the “Take a Stand” program and to compliment the new Great Bear IMAX film releasing early 2019. We are hoping to have it in schools in the new year. #greatbearrainforest #standfilm #greatbearimax #pacificwild #gbrvr #conservation

A rainbow arches over the Great Bear Rainforest as a humpback whale dives into one of the many deep channels that form this labyrinth of land and sea. It was quite an experience shooting with the team from @oceanschoolnow in this special place. Our short stay was not long enough and I will be looking forward to the next trip. A big thanks to the people of the Heiltsuk Nation who showed us great hospitality and kindness and to all those who collaborated with us while we were there. Always a great time with this crew @scottsimpson17 @zanrosborough @sonsonlee @theobelnou @jordan.wilson.photography #oceanschool #greatbearrainforest

It’s always such a delight to watch the cubs grow. They learn so much for the 2 and a half years that they’re with their mother.

I won’t be able to go back to the Great Bear Rainforest this year to witness the salmon run and be with the bears at this amazing time of  year. I miss them so so much. Colleagues from in the field tell me that  Ma’ha, the old female bear I photographed for the last five years, is still around. That news filled me with immense joy. I also hear the forest has been going through a very dry summer, and salmon are scarce in the rivers. I hope Ma’ha and the other bears will still be able to get the necessary fat reserves needed to survive the winter by simply eating berries, crabapples and mussels. I hope the rain of the last few days fills the rivers, and the salmon start running again. Rain is expected this weekend. These creatures depend as much on fruits of the forest as they do fruits from the sea. #nikon #lowepro #cangeotravel #cangeo #conservation #sharecangeo #gitzoinspires #frametheextraordinary #Framedongitzo @gitzoinspires #wildplanet #polar #EarthCapture #BBCEarth #natgeowild #EarthonLocation #yesBBCEarth #sandisk #spiritbear #bear #greatbearrainforest #britishcolumbia #canada #explorecanada

The Spirit Bear is a rare subspecies of black bear that lives only along the central and northern coast of BC. There are less than 400 Spirit bears in existence, making them one of the rarest bears on the planet. Spending several hours last week with this young male as he fished for salmon was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had in the wild.

The Kermode bear, also known as a Spirit Bear, is a sub species of the American Black bear. Estimated population is between 100-400, and it’s habitat is almost exclusively on a few islands in the Great Bear Rainforest. I was so fortunate to stay in the Gitga’at First Nations community. Meet the friendliest people that opened their homes and dinner tables to us! Eva and Cam prepared the most wonderful meals, giving us a taste of what the area has to offer! To top off the wonderful experience, Marven Robinson with @gitgaatspirit, took us out to see these magnificent creatures, thank you for sharing the mooksgm'ol with us! #greatbearrainforest, #beautifulbritishcolumbia, #canada. 09/2018.⁣⁣⁣ .⁣⁣⁣ .⁣⁣⁣ . ⁣⁣⁣ #firstnations #wondermore #wandermore #exploremore #earthfocus #canadaswonderland #imagesofcanada #earthofficial #awesome_earthpix #nikoncanada #explorecanada #opcmag #wildlifephotography #adventureisoutthere #beautifulbc #natgeo #nature #spiritbear #marvelouz_animals #exclusive_wildlife #explorecanada #outdoortones @paulnicklen @earthfocus @natgeowild

Here’s another small watercolour sketch painted while exploring our part of the world many years ago. We had just acquired a tired old wooden fishboat (built in 1927!) that I fixed up for our young family to go camping aboard. It opened up a world of beauty to me - my wife’s ‘Nakwaxda’xw (and Gwa-sala) homelands in the Great Bear Rainforest/Central Coast of British Columbia. It was all I could do to filter the infinite details and try to understand the line, form, rhythm, and pattern that define this environment that was still so new to me back then. I didn’t think that I was interpreting what I was looking at - just recording, but looking back at these early works what else could I have been doing?
