This is a rare subspecies of the American black bear. I was so privileged to be granted rare access by the Gitga'at, a tiny community nestled in Hartley Bay, accessible only by boat or by floatplane 🚁. I watched in awe at how this powerful but gentle creature stood for hours catching salmon, not bothered by my presence. Very few people have seen the spirit bear. I feel so very lucky to be one of them. Anxiety that plagued me in my life in Ottawa was nowhere to be seen as I laid eyes on an animal of magnificent splendour. I wish I could have stayed forever ☺ #tbt #kermodebear #spiritbear #greatbearrainforest #bear #instagood #bearsofinstagram #feelinglucky #savewildlife #bears #anxietyawareness #mentalhealthawareness #followme #animalsheal #fightinganxiety #igs

Laughing and talking and kissing... just taking it all in... what’s their story? I’d imagine a life of laughter, love, travel, heartache, anger, making up, regret, failures, successes..... they looked like they’ve shared it all... ❤️. #missinmarv #travel

Canada's Great Bear Rainforest is home to thousands of such fragile watercourses critical to ensuring the next generation of salmon. #Gitga’at territory @bcwhales @thephotosociety @natgeo @natgeocreative @pacificwild

Instead of hunting gazelles or elk, one of the world’s largest sea stars (3 feet wide) stalks marine grazers like abalone and sea urchins. Armed with 24 arms lined with over 15,000 tube feet, this formidable predator can reach speeds up to 4 feet per minute, which is super fast for a sea star. Shot in collaboration with @pacificwild in Gitga’at First Nations territory. #canada #greatbearrainforest #WorldOceansWeek #worldoceansday
