In a moss-draped rain forest in British Columbia, towering red cedars live a thousand years, and black bears are born with white fur.
The August 2011 issue of National Geographic features incredible images from photographer Paul Nicklen in two important stories by Bruce Barcott; Spirit Bear: The wildest place in America and Pipeline Through Paradise. Paul and his colleagues from the International League of Conservation Photographers cover a proposed plan to build an oil pipeline through the Land of the Spirit Bear in Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest.
