Time for A Nap – Brown Bear at the Bear Forest
The Bear Forest
In the Bear Forest, brown bears which were formerly mistreated now live a carefree life. They share a two-hectare wooded plot with the wolves. The features include a waterfall, rocks and a pond. A unique project!
In the Bear Forest, the natural habitat of the bears is copied as much as possible, to encourage them to behave naturally. The residents of the forest have the company of a number of wolves. They are given a varied, seasonal diet, based on what is available in the wild.
The Bear Forest was initiated by Ouwehands Zoo Rhenen and Alertis, the fund for bear and nature conservation.
