FedEx makes a bear-y special delivery to the Oakland Zoo


Although featured on the state flag of California, very few grizzly bears remain in the contiguous United States today.

The orphaned cubs, all one-year-old boys, came from mothers who were designated as public threats by the Alaska Department of Fish and Wildlife. Since the cubs could not be released back into the wild, the Oakland Zoo built them a 2.5-acre natural habitat in the new California Trail expansion. It comes equipped with a pool, a waterfall, several dens and trees for climbing.

FedEx donated its services for this special delivery as part of the FedEx Cares “Delivering for Good” effort, which supports the movement of rescued and endangered animals.

Visit the Oakland Zoo website for more information about these p-awesome cubs and the California Trail.

Watch the bear cubs as they journey from Alaska to the Oakland Zoo via FedEx Express.
