Unlike yesterday’s post there is no need to explain that this is a large grizzly bear. It just is!
Weight: males: up to 2,500 pounds (1,120 kg) females: up to 770 pounds (350 kg) pups: about 35-50 pounds (16-22.5 kg)
Length: males: about 10-11 feet (3-3.4 m) females: about 7.5-9.5 feet (2.5-3.0 m) pups: about 3.3 feet (1 m)
Some Steller sealions have started to spend their summers in our viewing area. The whale watching safari from Grizzly Bear Lodge travels from Minstrel Island on Knight Inlet to Johnstone Strait and Vancouver Island. This hour trip places us in an area of a variety of marine wildlife such as killer whales (orca), humpback whales, sealions, seals, pacific white-sided dolphins, dall porpoise, harbour porpoise as well as bald eagles and numerous species of ducks and gulls. All of this is because of the abundance of herring which one way or another is the main source of food, either eating the herring directly or indirectly through salmon. Some of the Steller sealions, about three dozen, which used to pass through on their migration now summer here.
