A brown bear walks behind the Brooks Falls viewing area in Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alaska. It's expensive and difficult to reach the park about 250 miles west of Anchorage, and explore.org has again set up high-definition webcams to livestream the daily activities of the bears at the park.

About this Article

Stars snarling at each other, mate swapping, dominant males posturing and establishing their territory. It's not quite "Jersey Shore," but these are among the highlights of the second season of an Internet reality show coming your way this week. The stars are the brown bears of Katmai National Park and Preserve in remote Alaska. Eight web cams, an increase of five from last year, have been set up at various parts of the park to livestream the daily life and drama of the park's famed bears. Social aspects also have been enhanced, with live web chats planned with rangers and scientists, and a new photo sharing feature.
