Did you know? White Bears are more Successful...

The white coat of the Kermode bear should stand out like a sore thumb in the forests, shadows and rivers of coastal B.C.

Instead, new research by University of Victoria biology professor Tom Reimchen and graduate student Dan Klinka shows that the Kermode, also known as spirit bears, are about 30-per-cent more efficient at catching salmon than their conventional black-bear cousins.
