The Princess Royal Park Proposal encompasses 265,000 hectares of central BC coast, approximately two-thirds on Princes Royal Island and surrounding islands, and the balance around watersheds on the mainland. This is a pristine coastal wilderness, with a rich ecosystem that provides habitat for killer whales, several species of salmon and the renowned white, or “Spirit” bears. It is the home of the remarkable Kermode bear, a population of American Black bears that produces, by a recessive gene, white-haired bears approximately one in ten births. The range of these bears is quite extensive, but this particular region has produced the greatest number of these amazing creatures.
