The bear pens at Northern Lights Wildlife Shelter are crawling with a record 40 orphaned black bear cubs-climbing, wrestling, and rolling fuzz-balls-each distinct in looks and personality. Rescuing and caring for these cubs are the passion of Angelika Langen, the shelter's resident 'Mama Bear'. While Angelika handles the black bear cubs, her husband Peter runs the world's only grizzly rehab program. With the help of their son Michael, daughter Tanja, son-in-law Shawn, and a team of driven volunteers, they save sick and injured orphan cubs and build them up for hibernation. In the spring when the cubs re-emerge as big healthy yearlings, the family transports them to remote sites across British Columbia where they are released for their second chance at life in the wild. Bristling with drama, comedy, and irresistible cuteness, Wild Bear Rescue tracks the raising of these endearing cubs, from their dramatic rescues to their releases the following year.
