What 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?
SUBJECTS:     Great Bear Rainforest (B.C.)
                        Rain forests.
                        Rain forest ecology.
                        Kermode bear.
