Alaska's diverse inhabitants include the largest population of brown bears in North America, with an average coastal density of 1 per square mile! Distinguishable in part by their dish-shaped face & sizeable shoulder hump (a mass of muscle helping to power their front legs), these awe-inspiring creatures can reach weights exceeding 1000 lbs. Feeding on the abundance of salmon, berries, & lush vegetation, brown bears living on Alaska's central & southern coasts grow significantly bigger than their inland cousins. In preparation for the long winter months they will spend in hibernation, these coastal brown bears can consume up to 90 lbs of food per day. Designed exclusively for Copper River Fleece by Cordova, Alaska artist Susan Ogle, this trim is named after one of the most unique places in the world to watch these feeding giants: Brooks Falls in Alaska’s Katmai National Park, where unusually large gatherings of brown bears congregate to feast on migrating salmon jumping up the falls. Masterful fisherman, these bears display a variety of fishing styles and techniques, which are typically passed down from mother to cub.
