On March 28, 2012 the Wildlife Research Foundation was able to visit Nell’s den site with her two cubs for the second time. On January 3, 2012 we visited Nell in her den and were able to capture 26 hours of film before she decided to change her den site. On March 24th her new site was located 2 miles from her original den where she raised two cubs. One male weighed 7.9 lbs. and one female weighing in at 7.0 lbs.. During the 11 week hibernation Nell entered the den at 216 lbs. and as of March 28, 2012 she weighed in at 156 lbs. Without food or water Nell lost 60 lbs. while raising her two cubs; one of natures miracles. The Wildlife Research Foundation is a privately funded organization. We desperately need your financial support in order to keep the cameras running. Please Donate Now. Every donation helps.
