Kermode “Spirit” Bear by Paul Burwell
Kermode “Spirit” Bear walking along a log over a river in the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia, Canada. These bears are not albinos. Rather, they are a black bear that carries a resesive gene that causes about 1 in 10 bears to be born with white instead of black fur. They only live on the west coast of Canada and there are only about 500 of them in existence.
