Kermode CAM at Rosswood BC

Wow  -- a Kermode Spirit Bear Live CAM at Last.

 

Stephanie and Harreson Waymen of Rosswood BC, just north of Terrace, have found a hibernating Spirit Bear.  Now I ask How can you have a better omen!

 

The details of this find and how it came into existence is part of my introduction to this Spirit Bear topic.  Since Richard will be talking with them today now that he is back from Bella Bella and helping Ian McAllister with their Kermode CAMs etc. we hope to have more insight over the next weeks. Take a look at our Biology Reference Page for more information on this camera site

Keith "Bear Man" Scott - The Rainbow Bear

My good friend Keith Scott, also known as the "Bear Man" because he has devoted his life to the better understanding of bears and the education of the public in the value of these great scavenger-predators, he has again hit the jackpot with his time in the field.

Spirit bears become 'invisible'

By Jody Bourton
Earth News reporter

On a few islands in western Canada, white 'spirit bears' walk the woods.

Now scientists have discovered why these striking animals, a race of black bear, survive.

White bears are less visible to fish than their black counterparts, making them 30% more efficient at capturing salmon in the islands' rivers.

Elsewhere, similar white bears appear rarely, probably because those that do become vulnerable to predators such as grizzly bears and wolves.

The researchers have published their findings in the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society.
