Since 1996, ABR has been helping orphaned and injured bear cubs grow until they can be released back into the forest.  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.

Please come and take advantage of this opportuntiy to support, donate and help such a worthy cause!
