In Honor of Juergen

In remembrance of our beloved bearcam chatter Juergen

"The Bearcam community lost a beloved member this week, our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. I know none of us will be able to see a bear butt and not think of Juergen. He was a fount of bear and beluga knowledge, which he freely shared. He made us laugh everyday with his gifs and videos, he will be greatly missed by all of us."

We are fortunate to have two wonderful links to help us remember Juergen, our friend and mentor.

The blog,

And a wonderful YouTube video made by  Deanna,

  1. A good heart has stopped beating. A good soul ascended to heaven. Your wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in our hearts.

  2. Juergen was the sweetest man that I have ever known. He made us laugh with his bear butt pictures, funny comments and gifs. He was willing to share his bear knowledge with everyone and had pictures and videos at his fingertips to share. He welcomed new chatters with open arms and made lasting friendships with many. He was the sun on a dark day, the stars at night and I will greatly miss him.

  3. Juergen was in contact with you when he ordered three of the CENTENNIAL T SHIRTS. He was so excited about how very helpful and kind you are. I am sure that he would be happy about any support for your work for the Katmai NP.
    Best wishes from Martina

  4. It is still difficult for me to believe that Juergen is gone. He was welcoming to all newcomers. He made us laugh. He kept us honest. He was always there for anyone in need. And he truly loved the bears and all nature. His curiosity and dedication to science made us all smarter and wiser.

    I will miss him so much but his spirit will always be with us.
