The Great Bear Rainforest and Great Bear Sea together form one of the most biologically diverse and ecologically rich systems on Earth. At more than 6.4 million hectares (~25,000 square miles), the Great Bear Rainforest is one of the largest remaining tracts of unspoiled temperate rainforest left in the world, home to vast stands of pine, fir, and cedar, as well as populations of wolves, grizzlies, and Kermode or "Spirit" bears. Just offshore, Pacific currents fuel a food web that supports whales, seals, otters, birds and fish.
