A true symbol of the
precious rainforest of Coastal British Columbia, a beautiful
white bear lives in harmony with its complex surroundings.

Sprit Bear: At the Heart of Canada's
Rainforest, produced for The Discovery Channel's
Wild Discovery, takes viewers on a journey through
Canada's pristine British Columbia coast in search of
the rare white bear who has become a "poster child"
of the environmental movement, and looks at the issues
threatening its rainforest habitat.
