Are You There Brown Bear - 2019


Since 2001, Katmai National Park biologists have monitored bear and human use at Brooks River to record the number of individual bears; their activity rates; bear “arrival” dates; fish capture rates; and relative bear and human use in the river downstream of the falls. Biologists currently monitor bears from late June through July and again from late August through early October. These defined observation periods coincided with peak activity at the river. You have the opportunity to contribute to this long-term monitoring study by recording basic information about your bearcam snapshots. For more information about how your snapshots help read the FAQ
