Black Bear cubs of 2019 Update

Repairs and preparation of the Black Bear Complex continue, though are not yet complete! The plumbing issues have been fixed, though the construction company will be back one more time to work on a sliding door gate to one of the bear yards, which is difficult to open due to erosion issues. An amazing crew of volunteers has been working on trimming all the tree limbs around the fences; this work is nearly complete. Once trees are fully cleared around the fences, an electrician will return to the Center and test the electric fence. Some trees will be wrapped in a heavy plastic sheet to prevent climbing.

Once all these repairs are made, the complex will be ready! At this point, the staff are hoping this will be done in the next two weeks.

In the meantime, the cubs are doing well in the Large Mammal Isolation enclosure.
