The world below the surface of the Great Bear Sea

Ian McAllister GBR

Ian McAllister, a skilled photographer and Project Director of our Pacific Wild project, is a veteran of capturing the beauty of the Great Bear Rainforest. In December, while diving to do some routine hydrophone maintenance, he managed to capture some breathtaking shots of the world below the Great Bear.

As Ian aptly put it, “There is simply no way to describe the diversity of life, the kaleidoscope of colours and the jaw-dropping exquisiteness that each dive presented to us.”

Pacific Wild works to achieve long-term environmental protection for marine and terrestrial wildlife on Canada’s north Pacific coast. Using field research, web-based educational tools and other broad-based education and community outreach projects.
