  • A grazing brown bear on the Alaska Peninsula - a place about the size of England that is home to around 9000 of them! It's probably my favorite place on earth. In late May and June the bears graze almost 24-7 - the sedges are packed with protein and the bears seem to crave it early in the season. To replenish nutrients lost during 6 months of winter denning. (photo/Chris Morgan)
