Bears are back after winter sleep

Posted: 24th March, 2017

One young boy's dream came true at 11am on Friday 24th March, when Theo Curtiss-Sperring got to release the Wildwood bears back into their huge outdoor enclosure after a long winter hibernation.

Hundreds of Wildwood members and visitors came to watch the ceremony as the bears, rescued from appalling cruelty in Bulgaria, get to once again run and frolic in their amazing woodland habitat at the Wildwood Discovery Park in Kent. The Wildwood rope bear bridge was then opened and visitors got to walk over the enclosure for a birds eye view of the bears at play.

Our happy bears are out in their large enclosure until the Autumn and our rope will be open as long as our bears are active.

Watch the bears get released into their enclosure after their winter hibernation here.
