The conservation charity Wildwood Trust is encouraging visitors to see orphaned brown bear cubs Mish and Lucy at their Herne Common wildlife park before they journey to their forever home in Devon sometime around the end of May.
After eight months in Kent, the rescued cubs will be moving to the trust’s sister site, Escot. Moving them will be one of this year’s highlights for the trust – a world-leader in bear rescue and rehabilitation.
The cubs will start their new life in a 1.5-acre custom-built woodland home where they can forage, play and indulge their natural instincts and behaviours.
“After a tough start in life we’re delighted to be able to offer the cubs a fresh start,” said Paul Whitfield, Director General at Wildwood Trust.
