-Brown bear[edit]-

Brown bear at Katmai National Park.

Alaska contains about 98% of the U.S. brown bear population and 70% of the
total North American population.^[1] An estimated 30,000 brown bears live
in Alaska.^[2] Of that number, about 1,450 are harvested by hunters
yearly.^[3]

Brown bears can be found throughout the state, with the minor exceptions of
the islands west of Unimak in the Aleutians, the islands south of Frederick
Sound in southeast Alaska, and the islands in the Bering Sea.^[1] Most
brown bears in Alaska are grizzly bears (the subspecies of brown bear found
throughout North America), but Kodiak Island is home to Kodiak bears,
another subspecies that is the largest type of brown bear in the world.^[1]
The brown bear is the top predator in Alaska.

The density of brown bear populations in Alaska varies according to the
availability of food, and in some places is as high as one bear per square
mile.^[1] Alaska’s McNeil River Falls
