Here at the WRI, the New Year started with a visit from a barred owl (Strix varia) followed by many visits from the fox. She seemed hungry with temperatures starting at minus 28° F and never reaching zero.

I am thankful for all that you did for the bears and bear education in 2021. I’m looking forward to all that can happen in 2022. More on that later.
Thank you for all you do.
