Grizzly Bear and Wolf Tracks

grizzly bear tracksA healthy Alaskan ecosystem will reveal the tracks of predators.  Here, grizzly tracks are bordered in fresh wolf prints.  The wolf population has been growing on the coast of Katmai National Park.  The wolves use the beach as a highway and they trek the coastline during the few hours of summer darkness.

Bears and wolves compete for food sources.  During this past summer, guides witnessed wolves fishing for salmon alongside the grizzly bears on the Katmai coast.
