If you want to learn about bears, especially black bears, the North American Bear Center in Ely, Minnesota is the place you must visit. Exhibits, lots of information, a cub room for kids and their three residents, Ted, Honey and Lucky. Three happy bears that live in one of the most beautiful natural enclosures one can find in the world. I visited last year and this summer I will cross the ocean again from Spain to visit the NABC´s and meet its wonderful staff. Bear lovers with the mission to educate the world about the true nature of black bears.
