Farewell, Our Beloved Knut

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we say goodbye to our dear friend, Knut. Since 1996, Knut was our iconic animal ambassador at NIWRA. The lessons learned from caring for this amazing animal have enabled NIWRA to develop a world class black bear rehabilitation program and helped rehabilitate and release hundreds of ill, injured or orphaned cubs back into the wild. Thank you for this incredible legacy, Knut!
