Kamchatka Brown Bears by Sergey Gorshkov (16 photos)


Kamchatka, a peninsula located in the Russian Far East, is a fascinating land. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Okhotsk, filled with volcanoes, its subarctic temperatures have piqued the interest of explorers since the 17th century. But it was Kamchatka’s population of brown bears—one of the densest in the world—that attracted wildlife photographer Sergey Gorshkov, and pulled him back year after year to study these fascinating mammals.
