There could still be time for a fortunate few to join wildlife painter Robert Bateman, Birgit Bateman and Canadian Geographic staff on Maple Leaf Adventures’ Great Bear Rainforest cruise. The June 19 to 27, 2014, voyage up the B.C. coast promises unparalleled access to one of the world’s last unspoiled temperate rainforests. Trip proceeds support The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, coastal research and conservation. Visit for more information.
