Grizzly Bear Cubs and Me

Do 10 januari 2019
01:45 tot 02:45

Seizoen 1 - Aflevering 2 - Wildlife series. Gordon Buchanan is rehabilitating six orphaned baby grizzly bears back to the wild.

In only ten weeks, the bears are due to be released into the wilderness. First, they must learn two essential bear survival skills, how to swim and how to forage.

Without a mother bear to teach or feed them, it is down to Gordon and the Pazhetnov family of biologists to prepare the orphans for the harsh realities of bear life. The Pazhetnovs have designed a special wilderness training zone just outside the enclosure, where they can experience the wild but return to the safety of the enclosure at any time.

The biggest cub, Zhora, leads the group into the forest. Pasha, the smallest cub, eventually follows.

Pasha is always at the back and last to feed at any foraging sites. As a result, he is struggling to put on weight.

As the release date draws nearer, all the cubs undergo a series of challenges to check they are ready to survive in the wild, but will they all make it?
