Adult brown bear (Ursus arctos) foraging for salmon at the Brooks River in Katmai National Park near Bristol Bay, Alaska, USA. Pacific Ocean. MORE INFO Every July salmon spawn in the river between Naknek Lake and Brooks Lake and brown bears congregate near the falls to catch and eat them as they swim upstream. A variety of feeding strategies are employed to catch the salmon including catching them in the air as they jump over the falls, wading in the shallow water for them, diving in deeper water for them, swatting them out of the water and onto the shore, pouncing on them in shallow water, and even stealing them from other bears who have caught them.

Views of Deception Island, an island in the South Shetland Islands off the Antarctic Peninsula which has one of the safest harbours in Antarctica. A recently active volcano, its eruptions in 1967 and 1969 caused serious damage to the scientific stations there. The only current research bases are run by the Argentine Army and Spain. The island, located at 62857'S 60836'W, is approximately circular with a diameter of about 12 km (7 mi). Its highest point, Mt Pond, has an elevation of 542 m (1778 ft), and over half the island is covered by glaciers. The centre of the island is a caldera formed in a huge eruption which has been flooded by the sea to form a large bay named Port Foster, about 9 km (5.5 mi) long and 6 km (3.6 mi) wide. The bay has a narrow entrance, just 230 m (754 ft) wide, called Neptune's Bellows. Adding to the hazard is Ravn Rock, which lies 2.5 m (8 ft) below the water in the middle of the channel. Just inside Neptune's Bellows lies the cove Whalers' Bay, which is bordered by a large black sand beach. Since the early 19th century Deception Island was a favourite refuge from the storms and icebergs of Antarctica. It was first used by sealers, then in 1906 a Norwegian-Chilean whaling company started using Whalers' Bay as a base for a factory ship, the Gobernador Bories. Other whaling operations followed suit, and by 1914 there were 13 factory ships based there. On February 3, 1944 the British established a permanent base on Deception Island as part of Operation Tabarin, and occupied it until December 5, 1967, when a volcanic eruption forced a temporary withdrawal. It was used again between December 4, 1968 and February 23, 1969, when further volcanic activity caused it to be abandoned.

Curious Galapagos sea lion (Zalophus wollebaeki) nibbling snorkelers fin underwater at the Guy Fawkes Islets near Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos Island Archipeligo, Ecuador. Pacific Ocean. The majority of the Gal?pagos Sea Lion population is protected, as the islands are a part of the Ecuadorian National Park surrounded by a marine resources reserve. Fluctuating between 20,000 and 50,000 sea lions, the population does have a few threatening factors. During El Nino events, the population tends to decrease due to die-offs, cessation of reproduction, and collapses in marine life the seals are dependent on. Sharks are the main predator to the sea lion, and killer whales are presumed to be another predator as well. This species is endemic to Ecuador.

Adult gentoo penguins (Pygoscelis papua) going and returning from sea to feed along well-worn "penguin highways" carved into the snow and ice in Neko Harbour in Andvord Bay, Antarctica. These "highways" form in late spring as penguins repeatedly walk the same route to and from the sea from their nesting site above. There are an estimated 80,000 breeding gentoo penguin pairs in the Antarctic peninsula area with a total population estimate of around 314,000 breeding pairs in all of Antarctica.

It was first used by sealers, then in 1906 a Norwegian-Chilean whaling company started using Whalers' Bay as a base for a factory ship, the Gobernador Bories. Other whaling operations followed suit, and by 1914 there were 13 factory ships based there. On February 3, 1944 the British established a permanent base on Deception Island as part of Operation Tabarin, and occupied it until December 5, 1967, when a volcanic eruption forced a temporary withdrawal. It was used again between December 4, 1968 and February 23, 1969, when further volcanic activity caused it to be abandoned.
