Grizzly Bear & Treena’s Overlook


Central Park Zoo is home to grizzly bears who were relocated after being orphaned in the wild. These bears have an important lesson to teach about how humans must learn to coexist with wildlife.

Helping Bears and Humans Coexist

As people continue to develop land and build homes in areas that are prime wildlife habitat, encounters between people and bears have become more frequent. WCS conservationists work to educate the public on how to reduce human/bear conflicts. By raising awareness of the importance of keeping human food away from bears, as well as guiding land use decisions that will minimize rural sprawl, WCS is helping to improve relations between bears and people.

Bears with us

Our bears love to swim, wrestle with each other, stretch, and enjoy the enrichment our keepers provide for them, such as foraging for food treats.
