A sure sign that spring has officially arrived at the Peak of Vancouver, our resident Grizzlies Grinder and Coola have emerged from their winter-long nap to stretch their legs. This was the bears’ 15th hibernation at the Grouse Mountain Refuge for Endangered Wildlife and both Grinder and Coola celebrated their 15th birthdays while in hibernation.

Grinder and Coola’s habitat will be strategically expanded over the next while, emulating the experience in the wild, where Grizzly bears gradually increase their footprint within a territory.
The next time you visit Grouse Mountain, be sure to stop by their habitat and say hello.
