17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Alaskan Coastal Sow Clams at Lake Clark

Wild Brown Bears have a nasty reputation. But using knowledge of their body language and responding appropriately can prevent bear and human conflict. I was surprised that I did not see more bears in Alaska. I hope that more people will make an effort to learn about these creatures to protect them for future generations.
