The tide in coming in the grizzly bears of Glendale Cove on Knight Inlet move off the beach where they have been turning over rock looking for protein rich food.  Because our schedule enables us to spend a day in the Glendale River estuary at sometime there will be a low tide to bring the bears onto the beach.  If we arrive at high tide we first spend time up the river in the tall sedge grass where the bears tend to graze and as the tide drops we leave the river and move along the inter-tidal zone while the bears search for “beach food”.  This August photo taken by Marc and Solange Edouard from France shows this year’s cub, about seven months old.
