Tucked among towering mountains and pristine rivers on the Alaska Peninsula is a unique stretch of habitat: Alaska’s Bear Coast, home to the greatest density of wild brown bears in the world. The fractured, disconnected landscape of the national and state park systems exposes these bears to many threats, like mining, logging, hunting, oil and gas extraction, and climate change. This film centers on a diverse cast of characters to explore contentious environmental issues that have real, lived impacts for Alaska Peninsula residents and bear populations alike.
