"As soon as I saw you, I knew adventure was going to happen." -from Winnie the Pooh. The #wetlook during #grizzly #bear mating season. Meet named bear 'Lefty,' wishing he was alpha male of the estuary. With #lust on his brain, he could've cared less that I was even there ( #surreal). This brawny beast got its name having been bitten on the left front paw by its nemesis, the much larger alpha bear 'Bo Diddley' (pictured in this IG feed). Given the number of times we saw Bo chase him out of the estuary without further harm, you'd think his name should be 'Lucky.' Further #gratitude to Mother Nature that we were allowed to co-exist for 11 awe-inspiring days in their wilds of coastal British Columbia. Post-assignment observation: with several remote cameras trained on his every move, Lefty never did become Lucky. Poor sap, we were rootin' for him. @natgeocreative @natgeofineart #bathtime #madewithmefoto #naturegeography #pnwonderland #partytime #photojournalism #animalrights #chillin #Saturday #uncalculated #explorebc #westcoast_exposures #hikingadventures #photobomb #wildlife_seekers #natureaddict #wildlifeaddicts #igtravel #adventureisoutthere #traveladventures #leagueoflenses #documentaryphoto #onassignment #ipulledoverforthis

Today on the @insidenatgeo blog: https://blog.nationalgeographic.org/2018/07/20/making-the-unseen-seen-the-true-cost-of-oil-spills/ 🐋 🌲 🛳 —————————————————— Proposed increases to tanker traffic in British Columbia threatens our shared global climate, Indigenous rights, and a diverse array of stunning and important marine and terrestrial wildlife and ecosystems. ——————————————————— The consequences of a spill escape calculation via conventional methods - @megzzzh and I explore the continuing ramifications of the NES spill in Heiltsuk territory for Heiltsuk peoples, Heiltsuk land and waters, and the myriad species which depend on it.

Bears will stand on their hindlegs to get higher up and therefore better be able to smell and see whatever it is that has captured their attention - often this would be a first reaction to maybe the faint smell of another bear wandering nearby. They will get up and look, smell and decide whether it is worth it or not to abandon their feeding spot. Its not hard to see why they would need the elevation gain when the sedge is so high they easily disappear in it! 🐻🌱 . . . #grizzlybear #brownbear #greatbearrainforest #britishcolumbia #ilovebears #explorebc #photooftheday #wildlifephotography #gonorthisland #coastalbear

The white bog orchid, also known as the bog candle, is one my favourite flowes in the great bear wildflower meadow. It is a denizen of marshes and wet places, and is fairly common both in number and range size. The smell these guys exude is just amazing. 🌾 . . . #greatbearrainforest #plants #flora #bogs #marsh #flowers #wildflower #macro #macrophotography #explorebc #visitvancouverisland #explorevancouverisland #westcoast #canada

Life isn't all serious for bears. Even lady bears like to have their share of fun and sillyness sometimes. This female, one familiar to us, was feeding on some roots and wildflowers when she randomly decided to fall onto her back and have a roll around. She was so cute 😍 . . .

I could spend a lifetime exploring the North Coast. This particular night was glass calm with the most beautiful low lying cloud. Bit of a tricky Anchorage with the estuary quickly dropping off to 80 feet. We found a nice spot right on the edge with a tight stern tie in about 85 feet of water.

Canadian friends we know you always stand up for what is right. Please RAISE YOUR VOICE! Petition link in @pacificwild bio link 👊🏼🇨🇦🐻 ・・・ What has this alabaster icon of the Great Bear Rainforest seen during its time? And what will her offspring experience as industry creeps into their territory? The Oil Tanker Moratorium Act is currently at the second reading stage in the Canadian Senate. While an e-petition calling for the Act to be dismantled has been signed 6810 times, there is another e-petition supporting the Oil Tanker Moratorium Act. Canadian citizens have until July 25th to let Canada’s political machine know we want an oil tanker moratorium in the #GreatBearRainforest, forever. By signing the e-petition (link in @pacificwild bio), Canadians can help secure Mid central coast waters from becoming an oil tanker superhighway once again. It’s time to protect the Great Bear Rainforest and it’s wildlife once and for all. #notankersbc Photo: @iantmcallister Via @pacificwild #canada #ocean #marinelife #wildlife #wildanimals #wildandfree #wildliferescue #worthfightingfor #racingextinction #startwith1thing #awareness #education #conservation #compassion #protection #rescue #animal #animallovers #animalsofinstagram #animalwelfare #animalprotection

Last night the A42’s passed right in front of the lab. We caught up with them again this morning at 7am by the rubbing beach where we have one of our underwater cameras (streamed live on explore.org!). The Northern Residents of BC are the only orcas in the world known to rub their bodies on beaches and it’s not known why - but it could be because they have certain parasites not found anywhere else, or, just for fun! Holly (A24), the matriarch of the group, is the second whale to pass the underwater camera with her calf (A114) who was born last year! The male with the big fin is Surf who is the same age as me 🙂🙂 #orca #killerwhale #whale #whalewatching #britishcolumbia #bc #canada #greatbearrainforest #vancouverisland #wildlifephotography #explorebc #canon #canonphotography #beautifulbc #underwaterphotography

Would you like to visit a place like this? A place where grizzly bears, black bears, wolves and Spirit bears roam. This shot was taken in one of the estuaries where we are working to permanently end commercial trophy hunting of all Coastal Carnivores, in partnership with @cfngbi We now have our first entry in the competition to win a 10 day trip for two aboard our research vessel, the Achiever. You will visit the wildlife and landscapes of the Great Bear and the territories of our First Nations partners. Each entry requires a $5,000 donation. See the link in our bio. If we can reach our fundraising goal by the end of 2018 we can end commercial trophy hunting in the Nadeea tenure, safeguarding wildlife. We need your help, and you might just win the trip of a lifetime.

Each trip with @bluewateradventuresbc is entirely unique, with participants being able to see an array of bears (even the mystical white kermode), whales, dolphins, otters, and wolves. Wildlife and weather are not on a schedule, meaning it is truly a matter of expecting the unexpected—keep that in mind and you will come away transformed.
