'Why, Hello There' - photo from Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge; Brown bears hibernate during the winter, and because their mating season is from May to July, the females usually give birth around February, during the coldest part of winter. The baby bears nurse and keep themselves warm in their mother's fur until springtime. At that point, the cubs have already grown teeth and thick fur and are ready to play outside the den.
Endangered species affect our ecosystems
A grizzly bear cub plays in the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge. Did you know that these threatened animals play an important role in forest ecosystems? While foraging for plant bulbs and tree roots, they stir up the soil, which increases its richness and nitrogen availability. Since they are at the top of the food chain, grizzlies also regulate populations. Also, they’re cute! Photo credit: © Steve Hillebrand/USFWS #activism #endangered #bears
