Description

Stretching along the BC coast from Vancouver Island’s northern tip to the Alaska panhandle, the Great Bear Rainforest represents 25 percent of the world’s remaining ancient coastal temperate rainforests. Home to more than 230 species of birds and 68 species of mammals, it’s the largest intact temperate rainforest left anywhere on Earth. The bears and the wolves that roam the Great Bear Rainforest are brought to life on the pages of the Great Bear Books Bundle. Readers say these books are “enchanting” and “informative” with “stunning” photography.
