16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Kermode Bear

Kermode bears, AKA Spirit Bears, can only be found on a few remote islands in the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia. There are thought to be fewer than 400 of these bears in existence and most of those are so remote that they are seldom, if ever seen. We were fortunate to find three of these incredible beauties on our recent expedition to the Rainforest.
