Grizzly bears that live at the Center are animals that were unable to survive in the wild for different reasons. Many were orphaned when their mothers became used to obtaining food from human areas. Others had been labeled “nuisance bears” because they were becoming dangerously comfortable around humans.
These animals have a second chance at the Center. Their stories help share an important lesson. From them, we learn how humans can help make sure that bears in the wild stay wild forever.
The wolves were captive-born, unplanned litters and cannot be released into the wild. The Center agreed to take pups from different litters and were given the opportunity to develop strong social ties.
