Spirit bears (sometimes called Kermode bears) are a subspecies of American black bear with a recessive genetic trait that makes their fur white. These bears are extremely rare. There are perhaps just 200 to 400 in existence. By comparison, the latest population estimate for wild pandas is just over 1800. The range occupied by these stunning white bears is primarily restricted to the northern islands of the British Columbia coast.
