The good folks at The Bear Study group have been monitoring a female black bear named Jewel in her winter den. This past weekend, Jewel increased the black bear population by two. The tiny little cubs are hard to see at first, but you can certainly hear them when they’re born!
The Wildlife Research Institute is conducting the longest and most detailed black bear study and the largest educational outreach program ever for black bears. Keep an eye on their black bear den cam to follow the growth of these newest of carnivores!
