Cool off with the Katmai bears

Looking for a way to escape the summer heat? Don’t forget the live bear cam in Katmai National Park, Alaska. Icy whitewater, leaping salmon, determined bears, hungry gulls. All from the comfort of your couch.

  1. Thanks for reminding me of the livecams. I just spent five minutes watching one forlorn bear before he finally caught a fish. The others seemed to be more interested in working for some sustenance than this guy. Perhaps he’s a disaffected teen bear … 😉

    • Those are salmon going upstream to spawn. They die after they spawn, or if they don’t make it up the falls. The salmon run goes on for a number of weeks (mostly June and July, I think), plenty of time for the bears to stuff themselves.
