Dear fellow bear enthusiasts,
As you know the greatest threats to bears are loss of habitat and intolerant human attitudes. Vince Shute dreamed of a world where bears and humans would co-exist in peace. Since 1995, the volunteers of The American Bear Association, a 501(c)(3)non-profit organization, have been diligently working to educate approximately a quarter million visitors to the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary. However, the fate of our mission and that of the wild bears who have been visiting there for more than four decades is in peril.
Please help us secure their future by donating towards the purchase of critical bear habitat surrounding the Sanctuary - before it's too late! Together, we can make it a better world for both humans and bears through education, observation and experience!
