Released June 1st, 2021
All grizzlies are monitored by Dr Lana Ciarniello via radio collars to ensure that releases are successful.

Arrival October 18th,2020, 2 Females 1 Male, From Bella Coola. Grizzlies

Conservation Officers were called to the presence of a Grizzly and her cubs in a back alley, feeding on fish guts someone had thrown away.

Despite the disruption of onlookers the family moved along as desired and the officers felt that the mission was accomplished.

Cedar & Muwin

Released June 1st, 2021
All grizzlies are monitored by Dr Lana Ciarniello via radio collars to ensure that releases are successful.

Arrival November 15th,2020, 2 Females From Bella Coola. Grizzly

In a terrible accident Muwin died during helicopter transport to the release site. We are heartbroken that she could not be returned to her home-range with her sister. We are taking all measures to ensure that such an accident can never occur again. As we are pioneering in Grizzly rewilding our focus is to learn from all situations and ensure that solutions are found, so others that will hopefully copy our programs can learn from us and will be increasingly successful to help this amazing species.

Alex

Released June 27th, 2021

Arrived April 12th, 2020, Male, Species: Black Bear, From Alexis Creek BC

Alex gave us a lot to worry about with his arrival. He had obviously been without good nutrition for some time and needed a lot of medical help to recover. But he proved to be a little fighter and once feeling better was a real gem and a bit of a clown.

Heidi

Released 

Arrived April 24rd, 2020, Sister of Clara, Female, Species: Black Bear, from Williams Lake area
Sister of Clara

Heidi was the first of a set of triplets to be caught, unfortunately her siblings got away at first. Heidi is a little fighter with a BIG BEAR attitude. She was not very grateful for being rescued and took her sweet time to fell us at least tolerated.

Clara


Arrived April 27th, 2020, Female, Species: Black Bear, from Williams Lake area
Sister of Heidi

Released July 20th, 2021

Arrived May 3rd, 2020, Female, Species Black Bear, from Tappen BC

Arrived May 8rd, 2020, Male, Species Black Bear, from Tappen BC
Brother of Sumac & Casey

The second of the Tappen triplets was caught 5 days after his sister Sumac. He was in reasonable shape and recognized his sister Sumac immediately. The rescue took a lot of determination of both residents and our volunteer Lydia Koot.

Arrived May 18th, 2020, Female, Species: Black Bear, from Mackenzie BC
Sister of Sol

Originally a set of triplets Cheekq and Sol were caught by NLWS crew Angelika and Michael Langen after being called in to help by Conservation Officers. Unfortunately the third cub disappeared within a day, but the siblings went each into a trap overnight much to the delight of their rescuers.

Sol

Arrived May 18th, 2020, Female, Species: Black Bear, from Mackenzie BC

Franklin

Released 

Arrived June 5th, 2020, Male, Species: Black Bear, from Williams Lake area.

profile-sample2

The Rock

Released June 17, 2021

Arrived June 12th, 2020, Male, Species: Black Bear, from Hudson Hope

Rock arrived in a whirl of activity. He was confiscated during a police action on a different matter when he was found in the peoples possession. The name came to us quickly as he was VERY big compared to the other cubs. This was likely due to a high protein diet which accelerated the growth.

profile-sample2

Koda

Euthanized June 2021 

Arrived July 7th, 2020, Male, Species: Black Bear, from Panorama

Unfortunately Koda never thrived enough to reach release criteria. The severe malnutrition he suffered resulted in irreparable joint deformations that became increasingly painful as he grew bigger and heavier.  We had hoped that long-term human care would be an option, but sadly had to realize that his life would only consist of pain. After months of trying we had to allow him to cross the rainbow bridge, but he will remain in our hearts forever! 

profile-sample2

RozArrived July 12th, 2020, Female, Species: Black Bear, from Ft St James

We picked Roz up from her rescuers on the return from a release. It was obvious that the little cub had been hit by a vehicle. The head injury caused her to walk in circles. These type of injuries take time to heal and our role is mainly supportive. By the end of July we were able to introduce her to Koda and the two cubs became fast friends. By the end of August Roz could join the big group and she successfully hibernated with them.

Winnie

Released July 6th, 2021

Arrival Aug 19,2020, Male, From Kincolith BC Species: Black Bear with unusual markings

Winnie really stands out from the other bears with his unusual coloring which likely stem from his Spirit Bear (Kermode). Unfortunately his mother and sibling were killed illegally. We are grateful to the Nisga'a Lisims Enforcement Officer for stepping in and saving this cub. The Nisga'a officers named him Winnie (The name is of Welsh origin, meaning fair one; white and smooth; soft; happiness; or fair and pure)

Sparky

Released June 13th, 2021

Arrived August 20th, 2020, Male, Species: Black Bear, from Terrace

Sparky had obviously fending for himself for some time, he was small and very skinny. But there was nothing subdued about his personality. The little guy made it known that he was not fond of his new living arrangements. In time he settled and became more acceptant of his new lifestyle.

Arrived September 17th, 2020, Male, Species: Black Bear, from Terrace

HopeArrived September 25th, 2020, Female, Species: Black Bear, from Trail

Hope arrived together with her sister Hannah. Both females where in good shape and though they didn't make friends with the other bears they gave us no reasons for concern. Both bears went into hibernation. In March we came one morning to Hannah hanging half way out of the den box having seizures. We had never had something like this happen and despite massive intervention Hannah passed away.

Arrived October 8th, 2020, Female, Species: Black Bear, from Terrace

Arrived October 13th, 2020, Female, Species: Black Bear, from Stewart

Annie (named by the sons of NLWS volunteer Kim Reed) gave us a run a round for several weeks. Peter and Angelika drove to Stewart twice and though they saw the cub they couldn't catch her. Finally they left the trap with volunteer Kim Reed and she too had to move the trap several times before finally catching her at the American boarder.

Kiki

Released June 25th, 2021

Arrived October 29th, 2020, Female, Species: Black Bear, from Highway 37 183km

Kiki was one of those "Oh let's try anyway" rescues. Reports came from Jim Ljungh who drives this remote area for work regularly about this little bear that needed help. This is a 4 -5 hour drive to a remote area in winter conditions on the off chance that the cub is visible.

Fiadh

Released June 8th, 2021

Arrived January 16th, 2021, Female, Species: Black Bear, from Prince George

When cubs go into hibernation underweight their body can't support a full hibernation and they either die in hibernation or wake up to early. Fiadh was lucky and woke up, was spotted by caring people that then alerted Conservation Officers who caught her to go to us.

Ruby

Released June 13th, 2021

Arrived October 14th, 2020, Female, Species: Black Bear, from Terrace
