Meet the bears

Posted by | March 30, 2017

The WSU Bear Research, Education, and Conservation Center has 11 grizzlies in six pens. Here’s a little info about each one of them.

Kio and Peeka, are roommates and sisters. They’re both 12 years old and were born at the Center.

Luna, a 14-year-old female, was born at the Center as well. She doesn’t have a roommate.

Cooke and Oakley are wild bears from Yellowstone National Park that came to the Center as adults, when they were about 7 years old. They’re roommates and are now 14 years old.

Frank and John are brothers who were brought to the Center from Yellowstone as two-year-olds. They’re now 15 years old.

Dodge, Adak, Willow, and Zuri are the youngest bears at the Center at just over two years old. All were born at the Center, and Frank, John, Cooke, and Oakley are their parents. The four share space, currently.
