The BBC series, ‘Secrets of our living Planet’ will this week feature presenter Chris Packham visiting the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia,Canada to explore and examine the connections and nutrient cycles between the ocean and forest through Salmon and bears. The lodge that the team stayed in, may well be recognised by some of you, as it is the Great Bear Lodge, operated by Great Bear Nature Tours, and run by experienced wilderness guide Tom Rivest and Marg Leehane. The episode gets up close with the incredible Grizzly bears in their natural habitat.


Imagine waking up on a floating lodge on an inlet in the Great Bear Rain Forest, with the only access by float plane from north eastern Vancouver Island, spending your days in the wilderness concentrating on capturing that fantastic photograph as a Grizzly Bear scoops a salmon from the river at feeding time. You really could be there. During late summer and early Autumn, bears are enticed by the many Salmon spawning steams feeding the coastal inlets. The Grizzly bear season here is short, and booking early for the next season is essential.
