Leave Your Wildlife Legacy
A charitable bequest is a form of planned giving: a deferred or future gift described in a donor’s will. Such gifts allow us to initiate projects otherwise beyond our reach while providing you with immediate and long-term tax advantages.
Give the gift of a symbolic adoption to the animal lover in your life:
birthday or Christmas gifts
any special occasion
NOTE: No government funding is available, so your support is critical.
Adopt an Animal
Bear Shares are important to us because:
~$40 per day is needed to meet the needs of one bear that arrives at the centre
bears usually spend several months with us until they can be released
we’ve had as many as 22 bears in one season!
donations are our sole source of funding to care for the bears
Become a Student Intern (Spring & Summer)
We are on the lookout for individuals interested in an internship involving:
animal rehabilitation and care
