In 1900 there were 100,000 cheetahs in the world. By 2006, due to loss of habitat and prey, the number of cheetahs has declined to just 12,000. That's why I founded KidsLoveAnimals.com, which is dedicated to educating kids and their families about endangered species. If you love animals, please bookmark this site. In future posts we will take you along on our personal journey to Save the Animals through our KIDSLOVEANIMALS.com DVD series.

Brown Bears in Alaska


I remember the first brown bear that I saw when I was a kid. We were staying in a lodge in Katmai National Park in Alaska. In the distance was a river, and in that river was a large brown furry bear. We thought that we were seeing the whole bear, but when we walked closer to the river we discovered that all that we were seeing was the bear's head. The rest of the bear was submerged beneath the water. Wow, what a huge creature!

The photograph of the bear on the left was taken by my father at Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park, which is a favorite place for wildlife photographers from around the world to photograph brown bears catching salmon.

Something screwy with the search tool, but
more likely me. I was searching for something
else and ended up here, but lucky me, some
good info. Thanks.

Wow, those are killer claws. Beautiful photos- thanks for sharing.

Paul, I put an update on the eagle cam under the comment section of your last post. Sad news, I'm afraid.

What a noble creature - but also funny, Paul. They must have a sense of humour to go fishing the way they do. they're sooo big and look so incongruous messing about in the water.

Wonderful photos, Paul. I love your site.
