Although Katmai National Park is best known for being THE place to see brown bears in the wild, the park is home to another intriguing resident that has become more visible in recent years – the gray wolf. Brad Josephs takes us into one of the few remaining places on Earth where these two apex predators – the brown bear and the gray wolf – coexist. How have wolves learned from bears to thrive in this ecosystem that is subject to seasonal fluctuations in food availability with the salmon migration? Why is the wolf population currently increasing? Which of these two prominent species is dominant? This webinar will cover the fascinating dynamic between these two species, and much more of interest in the Katmai wilds.
