Bear Conservation has not yet visited this exhibit.
Site opened 25 July 2019. 7½ acres in total. Plans to integrate wolves and brown bears in same enclosure but no plans to breed bears.
Visit pending and no concerns raised so far.
We do not at present have any information on the feeding, exercise, medical and enrichment regimes for the bears in Bear Wood.
The video below, published on 16 July 2019, provides a glimpse of Bear Wood and some of the brown bears soon after their introduction into the exhibit.
