Two of my photographs were published in the latest Journal of the International Ocean Geographic Society. One is included here, the other was a double page image and is hard to scan.

Spirit Bears are so called because of their status with the indigenous people of the region. They are actually a colour morph of black bears which is caused by a double recessive gene. When both parents carry the recessive gene there is a one-in-ten chance that the cub will be white, regardless of the colour of the parents. There are somewhere between 50 and 500 white Spirit Bears in the area of the Great Bear Rainforest. The area is very remote and rugged so accurate counts are not possible.
