WATCH: GoPro footage of orphan bears readying for release

As the summer sun shines its last rays on the top of the world, we are getting ready to release 12 rehabilitated bears back to the forest!

You have followed the stories of these little orphans since the beginning of the year. They were brought in so small and vulnerable, and with your help, we nursed them back to health with round the clock milk-bottle feeds. As they grew older they started showing their mischievous nature and spent the entire day playing.

Thank you for all your support, these bears are now ready to be wild!
