Safe Haven

See what's happening in Grinder and Coola's mountaintop habitat


This is a live feed from inside Grinder and Coola’s (our two grizzly bears) sleeping chamber of their winter den. The den is completely dark and is lit with infra-red light which the bears cannot see. The bears have made a deep bed out of soft Pacific-Silver Fir boughs and spend the winter curled up napping away most of the day. However, just because they are in hibernation does not mean they do not move at all. Watch for activities such as sitting up, grooming, making the bed and even some light play between the two bears – all this activity keeps their muscles and bones healthy during the long winter months. This is Grinder and Coola's 17th hibernation, which often lasts as long as 5 months, from November until April.
