What is a Spirit Bear?

Spirit Bears are real bears. They are also known as Kermode Bears and live on the coast of British Columbia.  Spirit Bears are a subspecies of the North American black bear that have a recessive gene causing about 1 in 10 bears to be white or cream colored.

The legend of Spirit Bear is that the white bears were created as a reminder that the earth is pure and clean.

Our Inspiration

Our inspiration for SBPY is a young boy with a big heart and the determination and perseverance to create his miracle. Everyday we find small and sometimes significant challenges in our lives. We can either be powerless or powerful in our approach to these events and circumstances.

Kermode Bears face a huge challenge, they are on the verge of becoming extinct. When he was 13 years old, Simon Jackson set out to save the Spirit Bears. 

Today, he is the founder of the world’s largest youth-led environmental organization, the Spirit Bear Youth Coalition.  The SBYC has protected two thirds of the Spirit Bears’ habitat, but one major watershed still remains threatened.
