The Morning Hunt

A black bear (Ursus americanus) searching for salmon outside the Thornton Creek Hatchery on Vancouver Island. Bears as well as the entire coastal ecosystem here rely on the annual salmon migration into freshwater systems. As one volunteer told me, salmon DNA has even been found in the tips of Douglas fir trees!
