The central interior of British Columbia is currently experiencing a Pine Beetle Epidemic. Thousands of hectares of pine forests are dead or dying die to infection by pine beetles. The epidemic has partially been caused by Climate Change, because the winters in the interior no longer get cold enough to hold the pine beetle in check.
The Pine Beetle Epidemic is going to kill most of the trees in Interior British Columbia.

A rare subspecies of black bear, also known as a spirit bear. Rather than being born with black fur Kermode bears are born with white fur. The kermode bear is the official animal of the Canadian province of British Columbia. It is found only in the temperate rainforests of northwest British Columbia near Terrace and on the islands of Haida Gwaii.
Many tourists go to northern British Columbia hoping to see a Kermode, unfortunately, they are extremely rare, and even residents of the area feel very lucky if they ever see one.
