Ghost Bear Institute


Our Mission

Building on the legacy of the Spirit Bear Youth Coalition’s two-decade journey that helped save Canada’s Kermode bear, Ghost Bear Institute – like the campaign itself – seeks to inspire, educate and spark a new generation to foster a better balance between people and nature.

Nature Labs

A digital classroom of curated content built for inquiry-based education. Daily updates and constant connections between student lessons and their communities. This isn’t a dry, out-of-date textbook. This is Nature Labs.

Field Trips

Not your kids’ field trip. It’s a personalized, intimate adventure into Canada’s Rocky Mountains to not only explore the landscape and meet the wildlife, but to understand their stories and create your own – with a purpose.

Community Conversations

From schools to community gatherings, we’re travelling coast to coast to coast to start a conversation about our shared challenge of safeguarding Canada’s natural inheritance and how, together, we can make a difference.

Profiles of Nature

Be inspired by our images that fuse citizen science and ethical photography. Immerse yourself in the stories they help us write. Weigh the analysis of the issues they inform. Storytelling is at the heart of all that we do.
