Northern Lights team prepares for spring road trip

A pair of bears at Northern LightsAngelika and Peter Langen, founders of Northern Lights Wildlife Society, will be on a very long road trip this spring and summer, returning 39 bear cubs to their natural habitat. They expect to cover more than 6,000 miles or 10,000 kilometres in British Columbia.

The cubs, which include four grizzly bears, were all born in Jan/Feb 2010 and are now old enough to be safely returned to the wild. The Langens, both former zoo keepers, manage the bears to prevent them from becoming too human oriented, as that could prove to be a hazard to their own health in the wild as well as to the safety of humans.

Along with providing care for orphaned wild animals, NLWS works with university students from around the world, offering unique study opportunities with the animals, as well as conferring with the local government on better management of wild population. supports NLWS through the Gifts That Give More [tm] program.
