The Great Bear Rainforest has some of the highest remaining concentrations of GRIZZLY BEARS in North America, as well as some of the continent's largest specimens. Grizzlies fish for pink salmon in the many creeks of the Great Bear, and will also spend hours sifting through streamside gravel for salmon roe. In fact, in the fall salmon can make up as much as 95 percent of coastal grizzlies' diets. At other times the bears eat greater quantities of plants than of meat.
