Countdown to Bear Cam Season!

In just a few short weeks, hundreds of thousands of salmon will return to Brooks River, attracting dozens of ravenous brown bears. For salmon, this is the final leg of an epic and dangerous journey to their spawning grounds. After hibernating for several months, the river’s brown bears will be eager to gain back the weight they lost in winter and spring. You’ll be able to watch the spectacle of survival, hunger, and competition unfold on the world famous bearcams.

Join explore.org for a pre-season bearcam live chat on Friday, June 1st, at 7pm ET/ 4pm PT. Led by a surprise host, we’ll look back at the events on bearcam in 2017, answer your questions, and discuss some of the major storylines to follow this summer. Bearcam 2018 could be one of the most exciting seasons yet!
