  • LAND OF 10,000 GRIZZLIES

DESCRIPTION

Lying in the far east of Russia is a wild and isolated realm that has been closed to outsiders for most of the last hundred years when a Soviet military base made this forbidden territory. But wildlife was left to flourish. Compelled by the instinct to reproduce, millions of salmon journey to Kamchatka every summer, making it a haven for the some 10,000 grizzly bears that inhabit this land. Northern fur seals, the arctic fox and Stellar’s sea eagle also call this harsh and beautiful terrain home.
