Kermode bears, or spirit bears, are not albino, but black bears turned white by a rare genetic anomaly. They are culturally significant to British Columbia's coastal indigenous peoples, who safeguarded them during the fur trade of the 1800s by keeping their existence secret. I consider it a privilege to continue the centuries-old fight to protect these unique animals with whom we share our home.
