                Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.

          As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of <a href="#mink">mink</a>, <a href="#bears">bears</a>, and <a href="#eagles">bald eagles</a>.

.wildlife {
  background-image: url('img/bear.jpg');
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-position: center;
  background-size: cover;
  box-sizing: border-box;
}

The code you wrote works for everything but the last step, where you need to add box-sizing: border-box;

But there's not really any reason to write these all as different rules, it's much better if you put them all in one rule

In addition, about 7 lines down in your style.css you have declared; background-image: position; which doesn't make sense ... you've already said what the image is ... what you probably need is something like; background-position: center;
