Six-year-old Lily is denned in a brush pile where she should give birth to her third litter around January 20, 2013.

Lily is teaching the world more about life in black bear dens than we ever thought possible. Thousands around the world watched as Lily labored to give birth to Hope on January 22, 2010 and to Faith and Jason on January 21, 2011. Lily's family touched those who watched the tender, often playful, interactions that are part of family care in black bears.

Lily is descended from 26-year-old Shadow, the matriarch of the clan being studied by the Wildlife Research Institute of Ely, Minnesota, USA.
