From the giant brown bears to the tiny Ezo flying squirrels, the Shiretoko peninsula is a paradise for wildlife. It is known for having one of the highest densities of brown bears in the world and is thus known as “bear country”. The bears can even be found coexisitng with local fisherman as each species collects their share of salmon and other fish.
