Glacier Bay National Park

Jun 29, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion


Today was Glacier Bay Day! This national park site is 3.3 million acres of wildness and wilderness, a place of dynamic change and stories of adventure. Our adventure began on the park’s day boat, the Baranof Wind, which whisked us to the glaciers and excellent wildlife hotspots in between. In the afternoon, we explored Bartlett Cove to see a Tlingit Tribal house and a forest trail.

About the Author

Sarah Keefer

Naturalist

Sarah’s fondest memories of nature are experiences she’s shared with friends—especially when those experiences involve spotting wildlife from the bow of a ship! She’s captivated by the wonders of the natural world, and it was the lure of expansive wilderness and exotic destinations that inspired her to study wildlife biology at both the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the University of Hawai’i Honolulu. Sarah was first partial to mammalian studies, and it wasn’t until her first season as a field naturalist in Southeast Alaska that she began to truly appreciate watching birds and what they could teach us about patience, integrity, and hope.
