With physical distancing keeping families at home, family time is more important than ever!

The BC Wildlife Federation is here to help families of member and non-members alike to navigate these times. Here you will find  resources  and activities that you can give your kids to do on their own or do together as a family.

We update this web page MONTHLY. If you are looking of our previously featured content, they can be found at bottom of the page.

FEATURE ANIMAL

Kermode Bear

Kermode bears, also known as spirit bears, are a type of American Black Bear with recessive genes that make its fur a light cream color. They are found in British Columbia’s north and central coasts, and are only found in BC! The animal feeds on salmon, berries, fruit, insects, fawns, and other things that can be found in its forested BC habitat. They are extremely rare, with only about 400 of the bears remaining in the wild.
