Apollo, the Hibernating Kermode White Spirit Bear, has been sleeping for months, now he's waking up! Taken just days before he leaves his winter den.

last minute notice, Casey Anderson is on GMA (ABC morning show) right now.... apparently National Geographic is starting a "Expedition WILD" series next week, The headline is about wild animals and they noted NOT lke another bear in the news currently tha is being trained...... (clear to me it is reference to another program being promoted about black bears!)

my point here is that there is a kermode bear on the program now. I ll look later to see if there's a video clip............
eta.... there is a video, look under Thurs, bear paradise, and you can see the cub http://abcnews.go.com/gma

my mistake...KODIAK bear, not kermode. will move this later.. but perhaps some can tune in on the wet coast when it airs there.

Video: Apollo is Restless in his Winter Den

I recorded this video clip some time in mid-March, and it got lost in a bunch of unconverted clips. Apollo has left his den, but in this video, you can see him stirring around. A few days later he left.

That's a great video of Apollo leaving his den!

I saw a wonderful wildlife programme tonight on T.V. It was more centered on the 'curiosities' of wildlife.
That included the White Bear (Spirit Bear) and we saw lovely footage of the bear feeding on salmon and quite unconcerned about the camera crew not all that far away. This was on Princess Island. The programme was "Ushuaia". I will see if there is a video ref. tomorrow,if so I will post it here.
They were of course accompanied by an expert on the ecologie of Prinsess Island.

Thanks for bringing the story here, macdoum - the pipeline sounds like a major problem for the bears - but it is good to see a major network letting people know there is an issue. And there are some nice images of the bears. love

Does southeastern BC have it's own "Kermode" ?
I ran across a very interesting article about a trio of white bear cubs near the town of Elkford BC.
I have posted the story in our wildlife news: article.php/20111021041922980

Very interesting Judy. Black mothers with white and cinammon cubs. I read this on the news this morning, too. I thought it was near where you live.
