Katmai Bear Cam Connects Global Audience to Bears of Alaska
For your viewing pleasure:
For the third year in a row, Katmai National Park and Preserve has teamed up with media organization explore.org to offer a window into the lives of bears at the famed Brooks Camp on the Alaska Peninsula. The bear cams have attracted a global audience in the years that they’ve broadcasted their live stream, allowing viewers from around the world to observe the bears in an environment that few have actually visited in person.
There are four cameras positioned at Brooks Camp, a National Park Service-run campground that follows the Brooks River and connects Lake Brooks to Naknek Lake in Southwest Alaska. In past years, the cameras have run off of solar power, but recently switched to a fuel-powered model to allow for higher definition streaming.
