A Bear's Eye View of Yellowstone

This interactive feature from National Geographic invites visitors to explore Yellowstone National Park and imagine what it might be like to experience the park from the point of view of a bear. The team behind this project strapped tracking cameras to two grizzly bears and two black bears. What's at the center of these bear's lives? Without a doubt, food. As this feature highlights, these "opportunistic omnivores" travel from habitat to habitat in order to find nourishment. As visitors watch footage from these four bear cameras (accompanied by a map that charts each bear's travels), they will see bears forage for berries, interact with other bears (not always peacefully), and devour carcasses. This camera footage is accompanied by photographs, texts, and recorded commentary from biologists, providing context to this footage.
