Woodland Park Zoo's Bear Cam features two 20-year-old grizzly bears, Keema and Denali, in the award-winning Northern Trail exhibit at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo.

The award-winning exhibit features various enriching elements for the bears, including a stream and deep pool that maintains 20-30 live trout, many that have lived in the pool for several years. The bears actively fish for the trout, occasionally teaming up to corral and capture the trout. 

NOTE: Sometimes the bears are out of view from the camera when they are fishing for trout in the pool. They are also much less active during the colder winter months.

The bears are scatter-fed throughout the day with small food items placed throughout the exhibit, allowing them to wander in search of food, just as they would in the wild. This gives them the opportunity to explore the full area of their exhibit. Since this is a large exhibit, they may not always be visible. 

Brown (grizzly) bears are an endangered species in the lower 48 contiguous United States (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). We collaborate with the Western Wildlife Outreach to protect bears and teach local communities how to live in harmony with these magnificent animals.

The exhibit was made possible, in part, through the generosity of Brown Bear Car Wash, the Odermat family, Alaska Airlines and The Hugh and Jane Ferguson Foundation.
