Grizzly Bear Photography in Khutzeymateen British Columbia
Earlier this summer I had one of the most profound experiences of my life in Khutzeymateen Provincial Park in northern British Columbia. This grizzly bear sanctuary was the first area in Canada to be protected specifically for grizzly bears and their habitat. It includes over 45,000 hectares of rugged peaks, a valley of wetlands, old growth temperate rainforest and a large river estuary.

The bears are different here. No bear has been hunted here for 23 years. No bear has been collared or tranquillized and no bear has found food that belonged to a human. No human has gone ashore. For these reasons, the grizzlies here do not see humans as a threat.

Ready the story behind the photo and see more grizzly photos today on the blog:
