A seven minute film documenting the rare white Spirit Bear of BC's Great Bear Rainforest.

 The Kitasoo Xai'xais First Nation in partnership with environmental groups and the BC Government created the world's only Kitasoo Spirit Bear Conservancy.

The Kitasoo/Xai'xais First Nations Have Lived Here for Thousands of Years

The people of Klemtu hold aboriginal rights and title to the land and resources that encompasses this geographic location of British Columbia's central coast region and a part of what is now called the Great Bear Rainforest.

The spirit bear is a unique creature. It lives only on the Pacific coast of British Columbia, in Canada.

The spirit bear is what scientists call an "umbrella species," that is, if a large enough suitable habitat can be protected for the spirit bear, many other species sharing the same ecosystem will also be protected under this umbrella; for example, salmon, birds, wolves, deer, grizzly bears, insects and many others. Rarely, a white bear is reported from other black bear populations elsewhere in North America but these are from different subspecies.
