KATMAI NATIONAL PARK AND PRESERVE, Alaska (AP) – The famed brown bears of Alaska’s Katmai National Park and Preserve are ready for their close-ups.

Explore.org has again set up live-streaming high-definition webcams from the remote Alaska park, offering people a front row seat at their computer into the lives of the bears.

Park ranger Michael Fitz says Katmai is remote and expensive to reach, meaning few people can ever get to the park.

But the National Park Service’s partnership with explore.org is opening up the experience. Eight webcams will offer views of the bears as they catch salmon and try to fatten up before winter.

The bear cams are among the 50 HD wildlife cameras operating from explore.org. Watch it here:  www.explore.org/bears
