Created in 1996, ABR is a unique black bear rehabilitation facility, in that they rescue, rehabilitate, and release these bears back into the wild. Helping orphaned and/or injured bears from all over the country, they give black bears a second chance. Their mission is three fold. 1.) To educate the public about black bears and the regional threats facing them; 2.) To rehabilitate orphaned and injured bears for release to the wild; and 3.) To research bear attributes which may help solve other environmental or health issues.
