Wild For Life

Wild For Life


Wild For Life is the Toronto Zoo podcast that brings you behind the scenes and unveils the “hidden zoo.” Each episode brings you information on the critical conservation work that protects endangered species and works to preserve biodiversity. You will hear from nutritionists, ecologists, veterinarians, social scientists, wildlife biologists, and more that are working hard to help protect wildlife from all over the world.
I am joined by Andy Cockburn on today’s episode to discuss how the Keepers at the Toronto Zoo look after their grizzly bear population. Andy talks about how the bears came to the Zoo; the differences in size between males and females; the difference in weight throughout the year; and explains the difference between hibernation and deep sleep.

This episode is packed with great information on grizzly bears and how they compare to polar bears.
