Meet the Founders of Knight Inlet Lodge - Dean and Kathy Wyatt

Dean and Kathy are the founders of Knight Inlet Lodge. They pioneered lodge based bear viewing in the early 1990s and have been ardent champions of grizzly bear and salmon stewardship and conservation in Knight Inlet and the Broughton Archipelago of beautiful British Columbia, Canada. As of November 2017 ownership of the Lodge has been sold to NanwakolasTimber Limited Partnership. 

“Kathy and I are pleased that we were able to facilitate this transition to First Nations ownership. Our hope is to see the evolution of wildlife viewing through sustainable management of lands, resources and the bears themselves, continue to grow under their stewardship. The protection of grizzly bears in our region and the province has been important to us and we feel that we are leaving this work in good hands. We believe that the development of a broader cultural component will be a welcome addition to the overall lodge experience. We wish Nanwakolas the best of success in the continuation of our legacy and look forward to their future endeavours.”
