The two remaining stamps depict the grizzly bear (Ursus arctos –also featured on the front of the booklet) and the polar bear (Ursus maritimus), one of the largest bears in the world.Black bears are found in every province and territory except Prince Edward Island. Carrying a recessive gene that sometimes produces a white-colour phase, Kermode bears are a specific population of black bears found on Canada’s west coast. The white-coloured Kermode bear is revered by the Tsimshian First Nations.The stamps are postmarked in Klemtu, British Columbia, home to members of the Tsimshian First Nations. A pictorial cancellation depicts a set of paw prints. The collectible envelope has a striking photograph of a polar bear taking a solitary stroll across an Arctic landscape.
