Eight webcams set up in Alaska's Katmai National Park and Preserve livestream the activities of the famed brown bears for viewers across the world who can't visit the park.

"We still want people to have an understanding of what Katmai is like, and enjoy, especially enjoy the brown bears that are here, so explore.org is able to partner with Katmai to provide many different webcams along the Brooks River so you have a chance to watch the bears and have an opportunity to experience their lives," park ranger Mike Fitz told the Associated Press.
