We host people from around the world to see the grizzly bears of the Great Bear Rainfoest, and are proud to be part of the conservation economy in BC. If you have seen a video on social media of a whale bubble-feeding right next to a dock full of delighted people, that’s us!
This is a unique opportunity to work in customer service in ecotourism while living in a spectacular wilderness setting. Your days would include:
We are a small team and occasionally you may be called upon to assist with other tasks that are outside of this job description.

· Work days are 8-9 hours on average.
· Limited internet access, and use of a satellite telephone.
Our ethos is threefold: to safely view bears in a natural setting while eliminating
or minimizing impact on them, to make every aspect of our operation as sustainable as possible (from hydroelectricity to solar panels to green cleaning products), and to deliver a world-class wildlife tourism experience. Great Bear Lodge is a founding member of the Commercial Bear Viewing Association, and helped developed the best practices for bear viewing in BC.
And you would be really excited to help the team deliver a world-class wildlife tourism experience for all of our guests.
