In the deep green of the Great Bear Rainforest, a white bear looks out of place. Like so much of the life in this region these rare bears rely on the autumn runs of salmon. Here, a spirit bear consumes a pink salmon, the smallest, but most numerous salmon species.

Location: Great Bear Rainforest, British Columbia
