Easter Arrival

 

Another little cub from 2022 found it's way to NLWS this Easter. We are so grateful the BC Government is permitting us to give these youngsters a fighting chance. Big thanks also to Capture Volunteer Kimberly Balcom and a host of transport volunteers that facilitated a fast journey from Crawford Bay to Smithers. We could not be more at awe at all this commitment and dedication.

Spring Has Sprung

Hibernation is a survival mechanism used by some animals to conserve energy during times of scarcity. During the winter months, when food is scarce, bears will enter a state of hibernation. They will lower their heart rate, body temperature, and metabolism in order to conserve energy. While in hibernation, bears do not eat or drink and rely on their stored fat reserves for energy. Female bears will also give birth during hibernation, and their cubs will remain with them until they emerge from the den in the spring. Despite popular belief, hibernation is not a continuous sleep, but rather a state of torpor where the animal can be easily awakened.



Did you know about torpor?

Torpor is a state of reduced physiological activity in animals that helps them conserve energy during periods of limited food availability or extreme environmental conditions. In bears, torpor is a form of hibernation that allows them to survive long periods of winter without eating or drinking. During torpor, bears reduce their metabolic rate, heart rate, and breathing rate, which allows them to conserve energy and maintain their body temperature at a lower level than normal. They enter a state of dormancy where their body temperature, heart rate, and breathing slow down significantly, but they are not fully asleep or unconscious.

Bears typically enter torpor in the fall, and it lasts for several months until spring arrives and they emerge from their dens. During torpor, bears do not eat or drink, but they do occasionally wake up to move around or even leave their dens to eliminate waste. They are able to recycle their metabolic waste and produce water through metabolic processes. This ability to survive for months without food or water makes torpor an essential survival strategy for bears in harsh environments where food is scarce. However, it also means that bears are vulnerable to disturbances during this period, as they may have limited energy reserves and be slow to respond to potential threats.

Finding Food

After hibernation, bear cubs typically emerge from their dens in the early spring and are in need of food to replenish their depleted energy reserves. The diet of a bear cub will vary depending on its location and the availability of food in its habitat. In general, bear cubs will begin by feeding on the early spring plants and grasses that are beginning to emerge. These can include dandelions, clover, and other herbaceous plants. They may also feed on insects and small animals such as rodents, which are becoming more active as the weather warms up. As the spring progresses, bear cubs may also eat berries and fruits such as raspberries, blueberries, and apples.

As the summer months approach, the diet of a bear cub will expand to include a wider variety of foods. In areas with abundant salmon populations, bear cubs will often feed heavily on these fish as they migrate upriver to spawn. In other regions, bear cubs may eat a variety of other fish species or small mammals such as ground squirrels. Additionally, bear cubs may continue to eat berries and fruits as they become available throughout the summer months. Overall, the diet of a bear cub is diverse and will depend on the availability of food in its particular habitat.
