Coastal wolves are one of the most elusive creatures that call The Great Bear Rainforest home. Though sightings are rare and often fleeting, they are not something you will forget.
Sea Wolves are a unique strain of wolf that lives in the rainforest along the Pacific coast of Canada. Genetically distinct from their inland cousins and from wolves in any other part of the world, coastal wolves can swim like otters and fish like the bears with whom they share the rainforest. Smaller than the gray wolves that live on the other side of the Coast Mountains, these wolves are highly social and fiercely intelligent creatures.
Living in the isolated wilderness of the Great Bear Rainforest, coastal wolves have also enjoyed a unique relationship with First Nations people of the coast, who have long offered the wolf a place of respect and admiration within their cultures.
