Watch live: The Katmai bear cams are back

It’s summer and some of Alaska’s most famous bears are back on camera. Webcams at Katmai National Park and Preserve are rolling again, capturing congregations of brown bears around Brooks Falls and the Brooks River as they gorge on salmon making their way upstream to spawn.

You can watch the action on the YouTube channel above, with multiple cameras and streams at Explore.org.
