Woodland Park Zoo's Bear Cam features two grizzly bears in the award-winning Northern Trail exhibit at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo.

Woodland Park Zoo’s two grizzly bears are brothers named Keema and Denali and are 20 years old.

The brothers arrived here from Washington State University in 1994. WSU maintains a small population of grizzlies in order to conduct long-term studies on bear nutrition.

The award-winning exhibit features various enriching elements for the bears, including a stream and deep pool that maintains 20-30 live trout, many that have lived in the pool for several years. The bears actively “fish” for the trout, occasionally teaming up to corral and capture the trout.

NOTE: Sometimes the bears are out of view from the camera when they are fishing for trout in the pool. They are also much less active during the colder winter months.

The bears are scatter-fed throughout the day --- i.e., small food items are placed throughout the exhibit, allowing them to wander searching for their food, just as they would in the wild. This gives them the opportunity to explore the full area of their exhibit. Since this is a large exhibit, they may not always be visible.

Brown (grizzly) bears are an endangered species in the lower 48 contiguous United States (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). We partner with the Western Wildlife Outreach to protect bears and teach local communities how to live in harmony with these magnificent animals.

The exhibit was made possible, in part, through the generosity of Brown Bear Car Wash, the Odermat family, Alaska Airlines and The Hugh and Jane Ferguson Foundation.
