I will be moving to the Durham area in August 2013 and I am interested in volunteering with the animals at the museum. I am 2012 UNC alumna who is working towards applying to vet school. I have thousands of veterinarian hours, hundreds of hours caring for giant tortoises, and 5 hours performing a whale necropsy.
Please keep me informed as to when I would be able to volunteer.

Bears coats can vary quite alot. Virginia happens to have a perfect V, Mimi has two stripes on her chest that don’t connect and Yona has just a little white patch. Gus doesn’t have any white on his chest. The color of their coats can vary a great deal.
Check out this post about their various color shades
