Welcome to the Great Bear Rainforest

The Great Bear Rainforest is the world’s largest remaining intact temperate rainforest, a fabled region of towering trees and rare mammals that stretches up the rugged Pacific coast from the top of Vancouver Island to southern Alaska. At 6.4 million hectares, it represents a quarter of all coastal temperate rainforest worldwide.

Its iconic wildlife includes a host of large carnivores, including grizzly bears, black bears, and the elusive white spirit bear, coastal wolves, cougars, and wolverines. The cold waters that surround this area are home to fish such as Pacific salmon and Pacific herring, and a wide range of marine mammals including humpback, fin, and killer whales, Steller sea lions, and harbour porpoises.

Killer whales, humpbacks, and other acoustically-sensitive marine mammals find sanctuary in the Great Bear Sea. As our hydrophones take you below the surface of some of its quietest parts, we're on the other end of the feed, learning what it will take to protect this whale haven.
