Ram Papish’s program “The Bear Necessities” is now available on YouTube

All you need for a great wildlife adventure: a congregation of hungry brown bears. At Katmai Park and Preserve’s famous Brooks Camp, bears gather in summer to feast on an abundance of spawning salmon. But what happens if the fish don’t show up?
