Every year grizzly bear families in North America depend for their survival on a spectacular natural event: the return of hundreds of millions of salmon from the Pacific Ocean to the mountain streams where they were born. Hungry bears eagerly await the salmon that make it up river.
This card features salmon battling against fierce currents, leaping out of the water to negotiate waterfalls and rapids, and a huge grizzly bear trying to catch a salmon dinner.
Dramatic gatherings of grizzly bears can be seen at prime Alaskan fishing spots when the salmon run upstream for summer spawning. In this season, dozens of bears may gather to feast on the fish, craving fats that will sustain them through the long winter ahead.
This is a card to celebrate the power of nature, wildlife, survival, Alaska, British Columbia, Canada, bears.

I love you so much I’d fight a bear for you. Well not a grizzly bear because they have claws, and not a panda bear because they know Kung Fu… But a care bear, I’d definitely fight a care bear for you.
