Since he was orphaned at a young age, it may not be possible to release him back into the wild. He did not get to spend time with his mother learning the "ropes" and terrain. It looks like he has an inside enclosure and two outside enclosures. What he needs are objects with which to play and items to spark his interest! Thank you to the Wildlife Park for saving him!

This beautiful, lonely spirit bear is being incarcerated like a criminal for the "crime" of being wildlife. Release him back into the Great Bear Rainforest, where he can live his life in freedom, meet a mate, and produce progeny. Keeping him in this pathetic enclosure is truly a crime against nature.
