Explore Canada’s Remote Pacific Coast and Meet Some of the Rarest Animals on Earth!

The Great Bear Rainforest is a magical spot on Earth. It's misty, lush mountains create the perfect environment for all manner of animals to live in peace and harmony. A place where salmon run like rivers of gold, majestic forest giants tower over crystal-clear creeks and waterfalls provide a natural sanctuary for wildlife.

Deep in the Pacific Coast of British Columbia, Canada, a rare creature roams its forests and mountains. The Kermode bear, also known as the spirit bear, is a subspecies of the North American black bear characterized by its cream-colored coat. Spirit bears are only found in the Great Bear Rainforest. No one knows exactly how many spirit bears there are, but estimates range from 50 to 100. They truly are the rarest bears on Earth!

Indigenous communities have lived in the Great Bear Rainforest for thousands of years. These guardians of the forest are inseparably connected to its vibrancy, which they have protected since time immemorial. Learn how youth of the First Nations are continuing to preserve their living history and the magical landscape of the Great Bear Rainforest.

This beautifully shot film takes viewers on a journey through one of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth, providing an up-close and personal look at grizzlies, black bears, spirit bears and the inhabitants that call this remote location home.
