Alaska’s BROWN BEARS
See the unique brown bears in their natural habitat
Alaska’s coastal brown bears can grow up to 1,200 pounds after feeding all summer on a rich diet of salmon and berries. The bears we watch are highly skilled at catching the fish they need to prepare for a winter of hibernation.
A large male may be up to nine feet tall on its hind legs and more than five feet at its shoulder. Alaska is home to 95 percent of brown bears in the world.
Brown bears concentrate in large numbers around estuaries—where rivers meet the ocean and provide a rich environment. Bears here dig up huge amount of clams on the tidal flats and walk a short distance to find protein-rich sedge grasses to eat. And helping them pack on pounds for the wintertime are huge numbers of Pacific Salmon returning from years of feeding at sea return to streams to spawn.
