As the saying goes, “There are old bear guides, and there are careless bear guides, but there are no old, careless bear guides!” Guiding bear-viewing expeditions for Nat Hab means being on the ground, surrounded by bears, unarmed, and sometimes within very close of these giant carnivores. Brad Josephs was one of the first guides to pioneer bear viewing on Alaska’s Katmai coast, and he has since led dozens of groups to the region for more than 20 years. Learn how Brad safely brings guests into intimate contact with bears. Perhaps most importantly, Brad believes we can use these same techniques to help us coexist with all bears throughout the world and reduce conflicts between bears and humans.
