The grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) in British Columbia is blue-listed (at risk). Half of Canada's grizzly bear population lives in B.C. and one of every four bears remaining in North America lives here in the province.
Now found mostly in arctic tundra, alpine tundra, and subalpine mountain forests. Most populations require huge areas of suitable habitat. Typically digs own hibernation den, usually on steep northern slope where snow accumulates.
