UPDATE FROM CHRIS BREEN (our founder) - currently exploring the #GreatBearRainforest
(The venue of "Ghost Bear Family" screened on BBC2 last night.)
"I’m not quite sure what the lure of the Great Bear Rainforest is, but it calls me back again and again, and I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been lucky enough to visit.
I’m not sure if it’s the pine-clad steep-sided fjords that are home to bald eagles, ravens and crows, or the emerald-green waters inhabited by humpbacks and orcas... Maybe it’s the chance of seeing a wolf at the shoreline, or a grizzly catching a salmon. Or perhaps it’s the most beautiful bear of all that has hooked me - the spirit bear - a honey-coloured morph of the black bear that’s only found in this part of the world.
Below are a couple of spirit bear shots I took when here last time, it’s this female that now has two black bear cubs!
As I write, I’m sat on the deck of the Spirit Bear Lodge watching gulls fishing and hummingbirds feeding, while out in front of me is pristine wilderness. It is world-renowned as one of the places to visit to see and photograph spirit bears.
Together with Mark Carwardine, we will run our #FestivalOfBears
trip here in late September 2015 - and due to a late cancellation we have one single space left on the trip. Why not join us for what will undoubtedly be a true wildlife fiesta?" http://www.wildlifeworldwide.com/group-tours/the-festival-of-bears
