Bears of Brooks River Book Citizen Scientist / Katmai Bearcam Wiki Edition:

This is meant to compliment the eBooks written by the NPS staff which are available at this link:

eBooks Katmai NP&P website

Our goal is to create a page for each indlvidual bear known to use the Brooks River area.  Let's all pitch in and create the best pages possible with identification information, distinctive behaviors, life history, known litters of cubs for the females, known courting and mating, known relatives, photos, videos, and any other information that will help preserve their stories.  

If you are not comfortable working in the wiki to add content, please ask one of the users to help guide you or share the content you would like to see added with them and they can add it for you.  If you are comfortable adding content, please take a look at some of the completed pages to see the format we are following.  Some great examples are: adult female 261 or adult male 603.

(and please 'bear' with us as we try to learn the best ways of building pages in Wikia.... any suggestions appreciated!)

We Have Not Figured This Out Yet:

Below appears 8 thumbnails that we have not yet firgured out what determines / decides which bears appear here.  The thumbnails appear differently for different wiki users.  We would like to find a way for each bear to have a thumbnail of its own and for them to appear in numerical order from 0 - 999.  If anyone knows how to control / design this section, please help us out and let us know.  

Here is an example of how it appears at this moment for one wiki user:

The section below that is also something we would like to be able to either eliminate or change how the sections are populated, for example, we would like the bears to appear in order by number (68 not appearing under 6, 83 & 89 not appearing under 8).  So again, if anyone knows how to control / design this section, please help us out and let us know.
