Specled Bear Breeding Arival

By Chester Zoo

November turned into an exciting month with the arrival of Lima a spectacled bear from a zoo in Northern France. Lima had been carefully matched with our male bear Bernardo as part of a European breeding programme and brought the total number of the species here at the zoo to 3.

With the species classified as vulnerable to extinction lets hope that they settle in well and hopefully we see some little spectacled bears running around soon!
