The salmon run

Alaska and British Columbia, Canada

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - July -

It’s bad news for the fish, but great news if you’re up for see­ing a se­lec­tion of the top for­est car­ni­vores in North Amer­ica. Af­ter years at sea, salmon re­turn to the rivers of their birth to re­pro­duce. In their strug­gle up­stream, they run the gaunt­let of wolves, black and griz­zly bears, and ea­gles – all at­tracted by the sea­sonal feast. Alaska’s Kat­mai Na­tional Park and Pre­serve is one of the pre­mier brown bear view­ing ar­eas in the world. Sta­tion your­self by one of its fa­mous bear fish­ing spots and watch the ac­tion un­fold as grizzlies lunge at rush­ing tor­rents puls­ing with salmon.
