Brown Bear (Ursus arctos)

Caribou and Brown Bear

Two short programs, about 14 minutes each, looking at wildlife and wildlife management and research in Alaska. This program looks at caribou and brown bears. Produced in 1997 by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

Video clips from the Nelchina Brown Bear Project

These clips were recorded in May and June, 2011, by brown bears wearing collar mounted video cameras. Biologists have been studying Southcentral Alaska brown bears in the Copper River Basin to evaluate the effects of hunter harvest on the bear population as well as the bears’ impacts on the moose population. Most video clips are 10 seconds long, A Bear’s Eye View, A Day in the Life of A Bear is a 13 minute compilation of a day’s worth of video.

Two articles in Alaska Fish and Wildlife News provide the full story; one article details the activities in A Day in the Life of a Bear.

Broadcast media interested in obtaining permission to use these video clips should contact Riley Woodford at riley.woodford@alaska.gov or call (907) 465-4190. For more information see the press release.
