Spirit Bear (Kermode Bear)
Photographer: Lisa Lazarus
Location: Gribbell Island, British Columbia, Canada
Story: 
I had come to the Great Bear Rainforest to see a rare Spirit Bear. Only 200 still exist. I was taken by boat to Gribbell Island where within 10 mintues of my arrival this 12 year old male appeared and fished in front of me for over 11 minutes. The Spirit Bear, also known as the Kermode Bear is actually a Black Bear with a white genetic marker.
