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


Sarah’s fondest memories of nature and wildlife encounters are ones she has shared with friends- especially when those experiences involve birding on the bow of a ship! She is 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 Hawaii Honolulu. First partial to mammalian studies, it wasn’t until her first season as a field naturalist in Southeast Alaska that she truly appreciated the value of watching birds, and what they could teach us about patience, integrity and hope.
