Adopt a bear
The costs for the bears and for the sanctuary are about 50.000 euros/month.
The minimum amount is 5 euros/month (60 euros/year), but you can donate more! You can choose an exclusive adoption, for 500 euros/month*.
When you complete the donation for one year, we will send you an adoption certificate. You can print it and place it on your desk at the office, like you do with the rest of the pictures of your family. A bear can be a member of your family, too!
Did you know that:
- the bears can live for over 40 years in our sanctuary?
- the sanctuary needs over two tons of food per day, for almost 100 bears that are currently here?
- your adoption helps us to feed the bears, provide veterinary treatment, care for the forest, maintain facilities such as the bears’ swimming pools and rescue the remaining captive bears?
*Exclusive adoption: the bear you choose to take care of can not be adopted by another person.
