Great Bear LIVE
Great Bear LIVE is an innovative research program and conservation tool that transmits live wildlife video and audio streams from the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest to your personal computer anywhere in the world. By sharing the hidden world of the Great Bear Rainforest, Pacific Wild can connect people with the region we are striving to protect and educate the world about the many threats this pristine ecosystem faces.
Pacific Wild initiative is committed to the principles of dignity, independence, integration and equal opportunity as described. We believe that helping to create a country, and an organization, where every person can fully participate benefits our people, our partners and our communities.
