Species: Grizzly Bear | Location: Katmai National Park, United States
This week was Bear Awareness Week! On Nat Hab's trips to Alaska, it’s not uncommon to find large numbers of grizzlies. On some of our trips we have seen as many as 30 to 40 at once. Cub sightings are always exciting. Travelers to coastal Katmai can see them playing on the shores as mom digs for clams.
