Did you know…
  • Eat ‘em all. Grizzly bears are omnivores that can eat everything from seeds and insects to fish and elk. While they are masterful hunters, they also enjoy berries, seeds and mushrooms.
  • Binge then nap. Personal diets vary from bear to bear, depending on their environment and available resources. However, all Canadian grizzlies hibernate. Throughout the end of the summer and the beginning of fall, they stock up on calories for their deep winter slumber.
  • Population. According to Parks Canada, there are an estimated 20,000 grizzly bears living in western Canada. While the number may see elevated, the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) actually lists the grizzly as threatened in Alberta.

Packaging:
