Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington is home to two grizzly bear brothers named Keema and Denali. Now you can watch the bears live at your computer! The zoo installed a webcam in the bears’ enclosure, so you can watch them forage, fish, and more! During the summer months, the best time to see the grizzlies is between 10:00 – 11:00 am PT and 2:00 – 3:00 pm PT.
On Wednesday, August 3, at 11:15 am PT, you can watch live as zookeepers set up piñatas for the bears!
In the wild, grizzly bears inhabit Alaska, western Canada, and parts of the northwestern United States. In the US, grizzly bears are a protected species under the Endangered Species Act. They are threatened by habitat loss due to logging, development, and mining. Only about 1200 – 1400 grizzly bears live in five separate populations in the continental US, including areas in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Washington.
