Kobuk was brought to AWCC in the spring of 2016. He was found searching for food in trash throughout Valdez, Alaska. To stop this bad habit of his and any potential problems, Kobuk was rescued and transferred to AWCC to increase his chances of survival and improve his quality of life. Kobuk has since thrived! He loves climbing trees, playing with balls filled with honey and blueberries as well as interacting with our animal care staff. Once Kobuk reaches full size, he will be introduced to our other two black bears.
