Senior biologist Dr. Lynn Rogers of the Wildlife Research Institute (WRI) is world-renowned for studying wild black bears for over 40 years in the north woods of Minnesota, near Ely. His current studies include two denning bears, Jewel and Lily. This year, Lily gave birth to two cubs, Eli and Ellie, while Jewel hibernated with her yearlings. Their activity is streamed live to a worldwide audience using the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network and a wireless router from Digi International.
