"Lily" is a three-year-old black bear that is part of a long-term study on black bear ecology and behavior being conducted by the Wildlife Research Institute near Ely, Minnesota, less than 30 miles from the Canadian border. As WRI's principal biologist, Lynn Rogers, Ph.D., has radio-tracked over 100 bears in the vast forests of northeastern Minnesota, studying some for as long as 22 years.
Bear Cam is an attempt by Rogers' team to capture the birth of black bear cubs in a den for the first time. The cub watch has set off an internet phenomenon and Rogers has graciously allowed us to embed the video feed on Outdoorlife.com.
