Now Prof Rogers is hoping that the first birth of a wild bear to be shown live on internet.
Lily is now pregnant and Rogers as placed a webcam in her den. Bearcam is being streamed live and it is hoped will provide scientists with new insights into bear behaviour.
We're putting it there because there is so much that we don't know about what bears do in dens and what behaviour they have leading up to giving birth. And how they take care of the cubs," Prof Rogers told the BBC.
When we are there watching them, we always wonder how much of their wakefulness that we see is because of our presence. This gives us a chance to see what they do when no one is around.
Another reason is that the best way the public can get to know bears and get over all the misconceptions that most people have is to learn directly from the bears themselves, and this is part of that.
Lily has her own facebook page.
