ABSTRACT
The article gives a couple of tips for dealing with animals during a river trip in Alaska. Rivers are food corridors and travel routes for animals of all kinds. As traveling on a river, try to manage activities to avoid confrontation with animals. Interruptions in obtaining food could mean an animal will be unable to feed its young or will starve during the winter. Bears are generally not a problem; people are the problem, when they encroach on bear country. Give bears plenty of space. Their most important place to find food is the river, particularly along the mouths of tributaries where fish feed and congregate.
