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.

Lenore and her cubs

Posted by:editor

Lenore has weaned her cubs at 18 months which is a  year earlier than normal. While people may be upset with Lenore this is not unheard of and does not mean she is a bad mother. As John Kitchin explains below we all need to be careful about putting human values on what is simply part of nature at work.

Our new lodge

Posted by:editor

Dean & Kathy Wyatt are very happy to announce the purchase of a replacement floating lodge that will be ready to go for the start of our 2013 season on May 24, 2013.

 

The new lodge will have 16 guests rooms, all with private washroom and showers, plus the ability to expand slightly in the future. Knight Inlet Lodge #2 is 5 years old and in excellent shape. We will be performing minor renovations to the lodge at our home base in Campbell River on Vancouver Island prior to towing the lodge to Glendale Cove in April for final anchoring and hookup.
