We’ve started providing temporary medical and nutritional care to Florida black bear cubs in need in an effort to help them on their rehabilitation journey with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
This Giving ZOOday, we’re asking for your help to support the level of care we give our Florida black bears, Cheyenne, Brody and Betty.
Brevard Zoo’s two adult Florida black bears will test potential bear-resistant products like garbage cans, food storage bins, and more.
Brevard Zoo is now home to an orphaned female bear cub! She will be moved to our Wild Florida loop in the near future.
A new device will build on our animal care staff’s efforts and allow our bears to enjoy some extra enrichment with the opportunity to have some control over their environment as well.
Our animal care team wasn’t quite sure what to expect when we built dens for our two Florida black bears, Cheyenne and Brody. After a few months, we are excited to share that we have learned a lot!
We’re calling this month “FebruBeary” in honor of our two Florida black bears, Brody and Cheyenne! Celebrate them with us!
Brevard Zoo keepers are encouraging our two bears, Brody and Cheyenne, to act on their natural instinct to hole up during the upcoming winter months by providing them with the start of dens.
