“Like a true nature’s child,
born to be wild.”
The wild grizzlies in these photos were photographed in The Knight Inlet in British Columbia Canada. The inlet is contained within the largest temperate rain forest on earth and has a thriving grizzly bear population.
The bears live in a remote location reachable only by float plane or small boat. We viewed bears from open air wooden platforms that are approximately 12 feet above the bears. The platforms are similar to bird hides familiar to bird watchers. Access to the platforms is carefully limited and regulated. Platform visitors are accompanied by guides. Purposely approaching wild grizzly bears without such precautions would be extremely dangerous to both humans and bears.
The bears, like this juvenile, are quite focused on consuming salmon and have devised an ingenious fishing method,
they submarine with their eyes open under water, and their ears above water, so they can listen above, as they hunt below.
They take a lot of time out from gorging to bicker and play.
Cheers to you from the stunning wild grizzlies of The Knight Inlet~
