Heidi talks with Monica Welde, the owner and cofounder of Bearadise Ranch, a bear preserve in Florida that is home to a beautiful group of bears. Tune in to hear Monica discuss their habitat, enrichment programs, and what a bear actually feels like! Monica notes that Bearadise ranch offers unique summer camps that parents love, and other events at the ranch. They also discuss the untimely death of Monica’s husband, a 3rd generation bear owner and trainer, and how she has been continually harassed by the animal rights groups, and even attempts to confiscate the bears from their beautiful habitat even though the facility is highly regulated and exceeds all regulatory standards. Monica says she will continue to fight the good fight, and wants people to come and see for themselves the beautiful ranch and amazing bears!
