About This Image

Spirit Bear figure on a street corner on Vancouver's Westside, near UBC. Spotted it as we drove past, and had to stop to take some images.
there was a small plaque below the bear, explaining what it signifies. There are several of these Spirit Bears in the city, and in the fall they will be auctioned off, to raise money for the treatment of children who are ill. Apparently there's a website, which I plan to check asap to learn more about this.

interesting to hear this, Karen, and rather funny to think you saw one before we did : ) Typical, right! This was the first one of these bears we've seen here, but since seeing this one yesterday, it jogged my memory that I had heard something about them sometime ago, but had forgotten. I was wondering where the other bears are. Am hoping to see others now.

I photographed my brother standing beside one of these bears near Canada Place. I thought it should be called a Vancou-bear!

Hi "Neighbour" : ) - good to see someone else from our area here! Welcome, hope you're enjoying it. Sorry Golda, but I don't know if these bears are signed, and I didn't notice who the artist is. This Spririt Bear is on West 10th Avenue, if you know the area, quite close to the Safeway store, same side of the street. Didn't have a pen with me when I jumped out of the vehicle, just the camera and big lens, which doesn't make carrying much else very easy : ) Will try to find out more, not sure if I'll even be able to find the website.
