Andean Bear Cub Cam

Update: Thanks for tuning into the Andean Bear Cub Cam! We hoped you enjoyed watching Brienne’s cubs grow! They’re now big enough to explore additional indoor spaces not on camera and soon, the outdoors. While this means they will viewable on the webcams less often, it does means you can visit them very soon, in-person, at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Institute. Stay tuned for more Andean Bear Cub Updates.

To conserve bandwidth, the Zoo's webcams are set to turn off after 15 minutes of watch time. If the player times out, simply click the play button to continue.
