Researcher John Kitchin has come up with an imaginative way to highlight the difference between bear viewing (good) and trophy hunting grizzlies (very, very bad).

He is getting guests and staff at Knight Inlet Lodge to have their photo taken holding both the camera they used to "shoot" the bear and a picture of the bear they "shot". The idea is to share that photo with as many people as possible via twitter using the hashtag #ishotagrizzlybear and #stopthehunt in the tweet. He is also encouraging everyone to share it on Facebook, Instagram and any other way they can come up with.

Knight Inlet Lodge Spring 2014

Posted by:editor

The start of our 2014 grizzly bear viewing season is fast approaching. This means all of the preseason and behind the scenes work to get the lodge ready for guests is well under way. As you can imagine there is a considerable amount of planning and work to get a floating lodge the size of Knight Inlet Lodge up and running after it's winter hibernation.

Every other year Norman Carr safaris and Knight Inlet Lodge swap guides for a few weeks. Earlier this year we welcomed star guide Moira Le Patourel and her partner Eamon for a Luangwa adventure and a few weeks ago, Innocent Tembo- Guide Manager at Nsolo Camp, migrated to Canada for a taste of a British Columbia summer.

Innocent told me some tales of his adventure – thanks to Moira for some of the accompanying pictures....

Kiokh the "White" Grizzly

Posted by:editor

Since she first appeared in 2009 with her mom and 2 siblings our "white" grizzly has captured the imagination of both guests and the staff at Knight Inlet Lodge.

Kiokh, she is named after a local mountain that is usually covered in snow, was featured on the NBC Today show during the 2010 Winter Olympics making her a very well known bear from an early age. A reluctant celebrity, she keeps her distance from both humans and other grizzlies, Kiokh is usually seen in the Glendale cove area from early August through the fall.

My favourite video from 2013

Posted by:editor

We are fortunate at Knight Inlet Lodge to have a wonderful setting and subjects for photographs and videos. Every year we receive photos from guests, staff or researchers that make you smile or in some cases laugh. That was the case with this video that Researcher John Kitchin shared with us earlier this year. John was at the lodge again in 2013 working on his DNA research of our grizzly population. part of his work involves multiple cameras located on know bear trails.
