WELCOM TO BEAR COUNTRY

THE SALMON RUN THIS YEAR IS EXPECTED TO BE SPECTACULAR!


Grizzlies have survived in extreme wilderness area of North America for over 50,000 years. Although these majestic creatures exist in harsh environments far away from man their numbers are constantly dwindling.

There are a number of factors contributing to this, almost all of them are due to man or man’s  influence on the environment.

Located in an Intet on Canada’s western coastal mountain range, the remote valley offers a glimpse of North America’s largest concentration of Grizzlies living and feeding in a unique biosphere.

Grizzlies show up in numbers late summer to wait for returning salmon. They depend on the annual salmon migrations to build up much needed fat for the long hibernation period over the pending winter.

Strong salmon populations are the single reason for such a healthy bear population. Feeling the pulse of the Grizzlies survival, a salmon hatchery operated by the local First Nation people located in the same valley supplements the Grizzlies local salmon populations - along with providing traditional food stocks for the Homalco people.

Dwindling in numbers in most North American rivers, salmon stocks are struggling to make a comeback comparable to 100 years ago when all rivers and streams of the North American continent were teaming with fish. There is still work to be done.

 
 

 

The Race to Revitalize Wild Salmon Is Being Waged On A Global Scale.

Wild Salmon are an icon of the Pacific North West. Binding the economy, culture and ecosystems together. Salmon, both meat and roe, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, serve as an important keystone to local economies not to mention feeding grizzly bear populations.

Salmon are an important indication of the ecosystem and the current state of this enormous region. After years of having their habitat destroyed by dams, mining, forestry and development – the race to revitalize their numbers is being waged on a global scale.

In the this remote valley, one of North America’s largest concentration of Grizzly Bears lives for the final months each year.

Learn how the First Nations are enhancing salmon habitat which in turn, is creating a sustainable environment for growing Grizzly Bear populations.

The salmon forests provide sustanance to many other wild creatures, trees, plants and even the insects and mountain sheep that scurry high above the valley floor along the mountain ledges.
