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.
