Chillin' (2016)

$4500 USD
Although Black Bear populations on Canada's West Coast appear to be thriving, industrial development and climate change have resulted in the loss of biological diversity and destruction of habitat within the Pacific Rim rainforest. As a result, significant conservation measures are being taken to preserve this temperate rainforest area and its inhabitants. Home to old-growth forests, many bird species, as well as large mammals and sea life, the Tofino Mudflats Wildlife Management Area has been established to preserve the wildlife habitat of Clayoquot Sound. Because of its sensitive and unique ecosystems, this region was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2003. While the Black Bear in this region may not be endangered, the permanent disappearance of any one species within it may have a ripple effect on the area's entire biosphere.
