The Kamchatka brown bear also called Ursus arctos beringianus is closely related to the Alaskan brown bear. It can be found on the Kamchatka Peninsula, Karaginskiy Island, Shantar Islands, and Kuril Islands, in eastern Siberia. Kamchatka has one of the highest brown bear populations, with an average density of one brown bear per square mile. Brown bears are one of the most widely distributed large carnivores in the world. Male Kamchatka brown bears can reach a weight of 700 kilograms. Their large physical size is a result of their access to rich food sources like salmon, pine nuts and berries. Female brown bears in Kamchatka can begin to reproduce as early as 4 years of age and typically have litters of 2-3 cubs.

Porto Moniz is located about 46 km from Funchal on the northwest tip of Madeira. The name Porto Moniz was a tribute to Francisco Moniz, who married a granddaughter of Gonçalves Zarco, to whom the place was donated. It is famous for its natural rock bathing pools that are filled by the tide with crystal clear water.
