The Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia is quite simply the largest piece of intact temperate rainforest left on the planet.


It is here in the Great Bear Rainforest that the Kitasoo/Xai’xais First Nation has lived since time immemorial.

 They have shared the forest and the salmon with a very special creature they call moskgm’ol (white bear).

Opportunities to view the Grizzly bear are quite good as they move from early foraging for roots in the late Spring to savouring wild berries in the Summer before moving on to the great autumn feast during salmon spawning which runs from mid August to late October depending on the river system
