In the temperate rain forest on British Columbia's mountainous central coast lives a very rare bear. Known as the white Kermode bear, the spirit bear and ghost bear, it is not an albino, or a polar bear drastically out of its range, rather an otherwise common American black bear containing a recessive gene predisposing the white coat. About one in ten are born with this color phase and no more than a few hundred exist in the world, all of them in this remote coastal region of British Columbia.
