The Great Bear region is an ecological treasure that supports thousands of jobs in tourism and fishing.
Marine tourism generates $104.3 million in revenues and provides 2,200 long term jobs.
People come from all over the world to see the rare Kermode Bear, or spirit bear. It’s unique to this region and cannot be found living anywhere else in the world.
Marine-dependent activities in these territories represent significant economic value. B.C. seafood and tidal recreational fishing generate $2.5 billion per year – and support more than 30,000 jobs.
The community depends on the wildlife in the Great Bear. An oil spill would be detrimental to them and their economy.
