Grizzly Bear Swimming


Grizzly bears are great swimmers and are commonly seen in the water in the river estuaries of BC’s Knight Inlet.  They swim so well that they have now migrated across Johnstone Strait to Vancouver Island and this is between one and a half to a two-mile swim.  The area biologists but radio collars on ten grizzly bears about eleven years ago and one of them crossed Knight Inlet five times.
