Katmai National Park and Preserve in Alaska has several webcams set up to watch wildlife activity within the park. At the moment, the Brook Falls Bear camera seems to be the one to watch. Brown bears can often be seen during daylight hours fishing for sockeye salmon at the foot of the falls. A couple bruins were doing just that when I first checked it out. There are also some other links to webcams where you view the Alaskan wilderness.

If you want to expand your view of the world, check out explore.org, a world-wide philanthropic and educational organization that partners with the National Park Service and other organizations, and contains even more live cams, films, photos and blogs from various sites around the world.
