|Brown Bears hunting for Sockeye Salmon, Brooks Falls|
Explore.org features live wildlife cameras all around the world. One of the locations with excellent coverage is Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park, Alaska. This time of year (July/August/September) you can watch live footage of the Brown bears capturing and feeding on sockeye salmon. There are some amazing scenes of giant bears standing at the top of the falls grabbing salmon as they come sailing through the air, scaling the falls on their way up river to the spawning grounds. The photo above is my screen capture of a live video and it provides some idea of the number of bears that can be found feeding at this highly productive location.

Explore.org also features amazing videos of African wildlife and I will be monitoring those cameras as we come closer to one of our upcoming cruise adventures next April/May. I will be presenting a series of lectures on board the Viking Sun as one of the featured guest speakers for the Viking 2018 World Cruise. My segment will take me from Durban, South Africa to London, England.
Happy wildlife viewing!!
