GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST 3D tells the story of one of the rarest animals on Earth – the fabled all-white Spirit Bear – and its ancient forest home.

Take your students on a journey to one of the planet’s most exquisite and secluded wildernesses on Canada’s rugged Pacific coast. Discover the secret world of the Spirit Bear and learn about the forest’s other inhabitants including grizzlies, coastal wolves and humpback whales.

Students and teachers will learn about the environmental risks to the remaining population of Spirit Bears, and the indigenous First Nations peoples combining traditional methods and scientific research to inform conservation efforts.
