Cook Inlet taiga

WWF Abstract

Even though this ecoregion has experienced the most extensive human disturbance in Alaska, it is almost 90 percent intact and supports a wide range of land animals and fish. In fact, the Kenai River supports all five species of Pacific salmon, including the world's largest king salmon. During the winter, it also shelters the second highest concentration of American bald eagles in Alaska. The mouth of the river is full of snow geese in the spring before they begin their migration.
