Walrus Cam


Getting cozy on Round Island

Walrus Cam on Round Island

This is one I didn’t know about: explore.org has a Walrus Cam out on Round Island in Alaska’s beautiful Bristol Bay. The Alaska Fish & Game offers walrus viewing permits between May 1 – August 15, which begs the question: How many do they issue?

As many as 14,000 walruses have been counted on Round Island at one time. If you go, you will also see tens of thousands of seabirds.

Before clicking on the link above, I should warn you that the Walrus Cam does not have the action of the Katmai Bear Cam. No salmon jumping, or bears catching salmon mid-air.

I will say that a walrus sure knows how to relax when visiting Alaska.

Thanks to the fine folks at explore.org, the Bear Cam is back up at Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park & Preserve. The salmon are running (and jumping), so follow the link at the top, and check out the dining habits of some Alaskan brown bears.

The Katmai National Park Bear Cam is back up and running for the season. The camera overlooks Brooks Falls in the park, where the bears congregate to fish the salmon run.

The 6395 square mile park was established as a National Monument in 1918. Located on the Pacific side of the Alaska Peninsula, Katmai is home to approximately 2200 brown bears. It is considered to be one of the Seven Wildlife Wonders of the World.

The Bear Cam has once again been set up by explore.org. The link is below.
