Plot Synopsis

WILD BEAR RESCUE is a 12-part, half-hour reality series that follows the staff and animals at Northern Lights Wildlife Shelter, a family-run operation filled to the brim with a record 40 orphaned black bear cubs, where Angelika and Peter Langen care for at-risk black bear cubs, runninng the world's only licensed grizzly bear rehab program. Together with their son Michael, daughter Tanja, son-in-law Shawn, and a few dedicated volunteers, this passionate couple work to save and care for the many sick, starving, and injured orphan cubs as they prepare to release them as strong and healthy yearlings in remote sites across British Columbia each year. Black bear cubs are often orphaned when their mothers are struck by vehicles or poached by hunters, and the Langens' home is full with more bears in their care than ever before. All 40 cubs exhibit distinct personalities and varying health needs, creating a huge challenge for the Langens to manage when the shelter becomes short-staffed and overcrowded. WILD BEAR RESCUE had its U.S. premiere on Sunday, June 10, 2018 from 7-8pm ET/PT, as Animal planet debuted back-to-back episodes.
