GARDEN OF THE SPIRIT BEAR
New York : Clarion, 2004.
do you think of when you hear the word rainforest? Do you think about
hot, tropical areas of South America? Of strange, exotic animals?
Well, did you know that there are rainforests in Canada and in Alaska?
There are different types of trees and different animals, but there are
rain forests up north. In the province of British Columbia, an effort
is underway to preserve the rich rainforests. The forests are the
home for many animals. One of those is the spirit bear. The
spirit bear is actually a type of Black Bear. I know it sounds funny
but a spirit bear is a black bear that is white. Got that?
It's not a polar bear. The spirit bear, or Kermode bear, is losing
its habitat due to logging. What is being done to help preserve the
rainforests of British Columbia and the animals that live there?
