RFI: polar bears in Alaska
I am looking for advice to add a polar bear to Alaska birding trip in July. I know of two places, Barrow and Katkovik, and hope at least few polar bears are present in summer. I plan to visit Barrow anyway. It seems that all commercial tours are in autumn and are tuned to photography at close range – I just want to see one or a few well. Ideal would be a confirmation, that few are now hanging outside Barrow and I can see them on my own.
If polar bears are unlikely in Alaska, then I will perhaps go to Churchill – best parks to complete a list of typical North American megafauna in C Canada would be interesting.
