Details

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.

Concerns

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.
