With conditions turning towards spring we've noticed that Grinder and Coola, our two resident Grizzly Bears, have been doing a lot more activity in recent days!
They have quite often been seen stretching, rolling over, sitting up and even doing a couple wanders outside of their sleeping chamber. They have a large building built around their sleeping den to keep snow away and allow them a safe spot to wander into to check outside conditions. The daylight hours have also been increasing, a signal to the bears that spring is near.
It is normal in the spring for bears to leave the den to check local conditions and look to see if any food sources are available yet so Grinder and Coola are doing just as their wild cousins are right now!
Follow them on their very own Grizzly Web Cam
broadcasting in infrared straight from the den and watch to see how active they becoming in the coming weeks.
And please stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to Bear Emergence 2017 - always an exciting day!
