BearCam offers live show

The BearCam grand opening will be held Friday at 5 p.m. at the Pratt Museum in Homer. Derek Stonorov will interpret bear behavior. Live images from the Gull Island cameras also will be available.

In 1999, as part of the Kachemak Bay Discovery program, cameras were installed at the McNeil River State Brown Bear Sanctuary, 100 miles from Homer. A microwave and UHF relay package was placed on a mountain in Cook Inlet and images of the bears are fed to the Internet. The experimental project was a partnership between the Pratt Museum, Alaska Department of Fish and Game, National Geographic Society and SeeMore Wildlife Systems Inc.

The BearCam is an intergram part of the multimedia River of Bears exhibition at the Pratt Museum.
