Tracking the Spirit Bear, the white bear that’s really black

This is about the Kermode bear of the central British Columbia coast and coastal islands. It is a black bear that carries a gene that makes a percentage of its numbers cream colored (not actually white). It is not an albino.

The uniqueness of the bear has helped build conservation efforts to restrain British Columbia’s normally unrestrained timber industry and to create a large reserve, which in principle, may keep the area fairly undamaged and conserve the bear, and more importantly the rain forest.
