The only place on earth to find the rare, Kermode sea bear is in the ancient Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia, Canada. The Kermode sea bear has long been renowned as an omen of peace and harmony; a rare flash of pure white in a vast blanket of lush green terrain.
You may recognize the Kermode sea bear as the official mascot of the recent 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. A rare Kermode sea Bear lives within the 25,000-square-mile Great Bear Rainforest.
The Gitgaâ™at First Nations community lives along the beautiful British Columbia’s Northwest coast. To them, the Kermode or more commonly known as the Spirit Bear, serves as a reminder from the creator of the universe of the harsh conditions of the previous ice age.
The Kermode bear is reported to be one of the rarest animals in the world. Sadly it’s estimated that only approximately 100 Kermode bears may be alive today.
For the opportunity to see rare Kermode bear and everything that B.C. (British Columbia) has to offer, consider a visit to this magnificent place.
