After a busy 2015, Langley’s Critter Care Wildlife Society is gearing up for another season of rehabilitating orphaned bear cubs needing rescue.

The first orphaned cubs of the year – just three weeks old – arrived recently.

“They’re simply wouldn’t be out of a den, still really too small to be following mom yet,” said Gail Martin, the Critter Care Wildlife Society Founder.

Last year, Critter Care rehabilitated 32 orphaned cubs, a record number. Many of them will be released into the wild starting in May.

To help with costs, the society is hosting a fundraiser later this month.
