Watch Brown Bears Catch Salmon at Katmai National Park

July 27th, 2012 by Mark

A new webcam from Katmai National Park in Alaska offers anyone the chance to watch brown bears play in their natural habitat. Around 2,200 bears live in the park, and almost 10,000 visitors come to visit the park each year.

The webcam was set up thanks to explore.org, who installed four HD webcams at the national park. All are powered by wind and sun, making them as ecofriendly as any other webcam you’re likely to find!

We’ve featured many explore.org webcams before on Camscape.

The live stream gives internet surfers a great view of Brook Falls, a small waterfall where the brown bears catch salmon. There is another webcam where females and cubs eat fish scraps that have floated downstream. Another webcam gives an bird’s-eye view of the bears from Dumpling Mountain.

A few brown bears try to catch salmon at Brook Falls.

You can check out the brown bear webcam here. If the webcams aren’t live, don’t fear as archive footage of the bears is played.
