“Kiona” and “Kachina” are 13-year-old Grizzly bear sisters who were rescued and brought to the Zoo in 2005. They were found orphaned at 18 months old by Montana Fish and Wildlife. Given their age, the sisters were deemed too young to be left on their own, as bears generally stay with their mother for 24-36 months. As a result, San Francisco Zoo rescued the sisters in 2005 to prevent them from being euthanized. The Hearst Grizzly Gulch was built to allow the bears to serve as animal ambassadors, giving guests the opportunity to learn more about the status of grizzlies in the wild. The large exhibit provides an up-close view for guests to watch the sisters interact with one another and forage for food. Their inquisitive behavior makes learning about bear conservation fun and interesting for both children and adults. Learn more about their story here: bit.ly/29yaLXa
