Busing among the grizzlies at Denali.

Denali National Park and Preserve offers visitors the premier opportunity in North America to see large concentrations of charismatic wildlife, including grizzly bears and wolves. The park is managed in ways that allow visitor access but guard against wildlife disturbance (Impacts to wildlife) and other potential impacts (Crowding; Impacts to attraction sites; Impacts to campgrounds/campsites; Impacts to roads/parking). The primary management strategies used to minimize wildlife disturbance include caps on visitor use (Limit use) and guiding where and how visitors may use the park (Reduce the impact of use). Visitor use is limited along the Denali Park Road and in the large wilderness portion of the park (Rationing/Allocation). The number of permits for wilderness camping varies across a system of wilderness zones (Zoning). A bus system has been implemented on most of the Denali Park Road (Facility development/Site design/Maintenance) and visitors are required to ride on park buses, backcountry campers must obtain a permit and use bear resistant food containers, and pets are not allowed (Rules/Regulations). An ambitious visitor education program (Information/Education) is aimed at backcountry campers, including a Backcountry Information Center (Facility development/Site design/Maintenance) designed to encourage hiking and camping behaviors that minimize conflict between visitors and wildlife.
