"The long term goal of this pilot project is to help develop standards and protocols for grizzly bear rehabilitation that can be replicated in other provinces, territories and possibly states", said IFAW campaigner Kim Elmslie, "This project can revolutionize the way we rehabilitate and reintroduce grizzly bears into the wild."

The bear cubs, nicknamed Suzy and Johnny are both a year and a half old, and were rehabilitated at the NLWS center in Smithers, British Columbia. Suzy was orphaned in June 2007 after her mother was killed by a poacher.
