Several of our bears at the WSU Bear Center have some new brightly colored jewelry: energy-monitoring collars. The collars will collect vital information from the bears and contribute to a research project.
Photos and video of the bear enrichment program in action.
WSU researchers are studying bears' fat cells to figure out how they can 'switch' on and off from what would be a diabetic state in humans.
The WSU Children's Center has several classes that take field trips to the Bear Center. Here are photos of one class that visited during enrichment preparation.
You can purchase Bear Center merchandise, including long- and short-sleeve T-shirts, vests, pullovers, and sweatshirts, to show the world you support our bears. Contact Brandon to learn more.
