Get Ready for Grizzlies at the Palm Beach Zoo

Date: December 8, 2015
The Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society is playing host to two orphaned grizzly bear cubs this winter! When their elderly mother began raiding homes and offices, officials found the two female cubs extremely thin and malnourished near Yellowstone Park. Unable to survive without their now deceased mother, accredited zoos in the US stepped up to help. A zoo in South Dakota has agreed to adopt the cubs – as long as another zoo can provide temporary housing while construction on their exhibit is completed. As a result, the cubs will ‘vacation’ at the Palm Beach Zoo through the winter and into the coming months. The grizzly cub sisters are now on exhibit daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day - stay tuned for the latest details as they become available!!

The Palm Beach Zoo is proud to practice responsible development by planting twelve new trees to replace those that will be removed to make way for our new solar array. Ten Zoo Member children assisted staff in planting the final tree near the Melvin J. & Claire Levine Animal Care Complex on September 8th, prior to the start of construction on our parking solar array this fall. Children took home gardening gloves and 10 additional trees will be planted in a rainforest in their honor through our affiliation with The Arbor Day Foundation.
