wildlife viewing

Southwest Alaska is home for a vast array of wildlife. From open tundra to mountainous glacial lakes, the Lake Clark area offers a variety of habitats for large and small mammals, fish, and birds. Large runs of Sockeye Salmon and the herd of Barren Ground Caribou provide the base for this complex ecosystem.

Grizzly and Brown Bears

Grizzly and Brown bears travel throughout our part of Alaska feeding on the calorie-rich fish as they move upstream to their spawning area. The bears count on the fish to provide the much needed fat to survive hibernation through a long cold winter. As the countless Salmon travel inland, packing into the small streams to spawn, the bears gather to feed and interact.

barren ground caribou

The Mulchatna herd of Barren Ground caribou migrate over the tundra, feeding on moss and lichen.The nomadic journey of the caribou covers hundreds of miles every year. Caribou travel in groups ranging from 2 to 20,000 animals, grouping together and separating as they migrate. Many local predators such as Gray Wolves, Grizzly and Black Bears, Coyotes, and Wolverines follow the migration to feed on the caribou.
