Grizzly bears of northern BC
March 2 2017
I stare out to the shore from aboard our 72 foot-long catamaran, scouring the water’s edge. Long grasses, a large overturned tree, a big rock and beyond, thick, pristine coastal rainforest. “How can I not see it?” I say to myself, then, I look again, this time further to the left.
There it is – another large rock-like bump, this one much lighter brown in colour, gingerly moving along the shore. Peering through my zoom lens, the bump emerges as a grizzly bear, coming closer into view as the boat silently approaches the shore. Silent, because in the Inlet, despite dozens of passengers on board, boat decks are a place of human silence while in the presence of the bears – no talking, no flashes, just the gentle click of camera shutters.
