The brown bear, a highly intelligent species, has been threatened by human exploitation for many years, in the name of entertainment, hunting and practices such as bear-bile farming in Asia. 

The current global population trend for brown bears is stable, with the number of wild individuals estimated to be over 100,000. However, in Europe four out of ten subspecies of brown bear are critically endangered.

The main threat brown bears face is human expansion into their natural habitat where, as a wide-roaming omnivore, their success depends upon large natural areas. The species is considered a high priority in conservation, as their presence reveals important management indicators for many other species of wildlife.

How your brown bear adoption helps

Recently our partner park Port Lympne Reserve partnered with Bears In Mind to rescue five brown bears from a zoo in Andorra that was closing down.

The bears are now enjoying their new custom-built three-acre woodland enclosure at the park that includes water features, den areas and plenty of vegetation, allowing them to live the most natural life possible.

Fun facts about brown bears

  • The brown bear is the largest predator still living on the continent of Europe.
  • Brown bears are extremely fast and can clock up speeds of 30 mph.
  • Brown bears give birth to cubs in January or early February, usually with a litter size of 1 to 3, where bear cubs are blind and naked at birth.
  • Up to 75% of their diet is made up of plant material, such as fruit, nuts, and acorns.
  • Brown Bears can pack on a massive 180kg of fat during the autumn in order to get them through the winter.
  • Bears have a particularly good nose: their sense of smell enables them to sniff food at a distance of several kilometres.
