Have you dreamed of going on an African safari? Or do you long to immerse yourself in nature and watch wild animals in their natural habitat? Well, you’re in luck because Katmai National Park and Preserve’s Bearcams are back for another season. Thanks to a partnership with Explore.org, viewers are able to watch live streams of the world’s highest concentrations of brown bears as they gather to feed in the Brooks River.
Katmai National Park and Preserve is located in Southern Alaska. Over the years, it has become well known for its large population of Alaskan Brown Bears and sockeye salmon. The park is celebrating its centennial year, having been declared a national monument by Woodrow Wilson in 1918. Katmai is celebrating the occasion with a series of special events and live streams throughout the season.
These Bearcams have become an important part of the Katmai experience for animal lovers around the world who are unable to visit the national park in person. During the busy season, tens of thousands of viewers tune in and watch the bear activity at any given moment. It’s a dramatic contrast compared to the 13,000 visitors who actually visited the park in person in 2017. Thanks to Explore.org, the 24-hour stream service allows viewers to follow the lives and habits of 49 different bears without leaving their desk.
Other animal live streams
The website also allows viewers to watch live streams of various different animal habitats including penguins in Long Beach, California, polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada and panda bears in Gengda, Sichuan, China.
