Great Bear Rainforest: Land of the Spirit Bear

  • OMNIMAX® Theatre
  • All Ages
  • 50 Minutes

Journey to a land of grizzlies, coastal wolves, sea otters and the rare, all-white spirit bear.

Hidden from the outside world, the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia is the largest temperate coastal rainforest in the world. Here, you will find the all-white Spirit Bear—one of the rarest animals on Earth. A member of the black bear family, Spirit Bears possess a rare genetic trait that makes their fur white. Explore the Spirit Bear’s secret world as you learn how the region’s Indigenous people have protected the forest for millennia, and see how the next generation of Indigenous youth are continuing to protect the natural balance of this ancient rainforest.

Narrated by Ryan Reynolds, Great Bear Rainforest is a Spirit Bear Entertainment film presented by Seaspan. It is distributed by MacGillivray Freeman Films.
