PODCAST: Canada’s spirit bears with naturalist Jack Plant


Ever heard of a Spirit Bear? It’s also known as a Kermode bear – and as there’s only a couple of hundred of them in the wild, they’re one of the rarest creatures on earth. The only place you’ll find them is in the Great Bear Rainforest, in British Columbia, Canada. And what makes them so unique is that while they’re technically black bears, they’re actually white in colour, due to a recessive gene.

During his time tracking these incredible creatures through the epic wilderness of Canada’s Pacific North-West, naturalist and guide Jack Plant has had some unforgettable moments with them. In this episode of Wild Lives by Faunographic, Jack shares some of his favourite encounters.
