Sponsor A Bear Cub and Become Their Hero!
Normally we don't see black bear cubs in need until the Fall season.
However, this year we already have 18 little cubs, admitted during the Spring and Summer! Most of them lost their' mothers due to attractants left outside (like garbage), while some were killed by a car. These little cubs can pine for days, stressed over the loss of their parent, siblings and natural home surrounding.
To rehabilitate bear cubs this young, it requires special staff, species-specific milk (including goat's milk), extra resources, and enrichment to ensure they grow healthy in body and behavior. With this many cubs in care already we are appealing to the public for support if you would like to help save them.
Donors Make The Difference!
River, Seymour, and Cedar Thrived becausing caring Donors like you, gave what they could to give them a second chance to live. These three black bear cubs that arrived at Critter Care Wildlife Society in the Summer of 2018 for rehabilitation. After staying for almost a year, we were able to release them back to the wild in June of 2019.
River and Seymour were two orphaned bear cubs, like many of our cubs this year, who were in jeopardy because they happened upon a free garbage bin meal in North Vancouver. Luckily, they arrived at Critter Care instead of losing their lives like their mother did.
