Bears of the Last Frontier

A film crew has traveled on roads from Homer to Deadhorse, looking for bears. Alaska still has plenty of wild country, but even in Alaska, as in much of the world, bears and people are learning to co-exist.

It’s your chance to talk to the makers of the public television series “Bears of the Last Frontier,” on the next Talk of Alaska.

Part II of “Bears of the Last Frontier” will air on KAKM, Channel 7 television on Sunday, May 15, starting at 7:00 p.m.
