Here’s What It Takes to Keep Katmai’s Famous Bear Cams Running
Author: Suzanna Caldwell
Looking for a moment of Zen? Or just wanting to sneak away to a wild place, even if it’s only for a minute? Enter the Katmai bear cams.
The cameras, a set of nine, monitor brown bears feasting at five different locations in Southwest Alaska’s Katmai National Park and Preserve, a park known for its active volcanoes and wildlife, especially bears.
Explore has been running the Katmai cameras since 2012. The nonprofit has cameras all over the world documenting different animals — from bobcats, tigers and sea lions in remote areas to puppy cams at local animal shelters.
