The Wildlife Research Institute and the North American Bear Center need your help!
The non-profit North American Bear Center’s (NABC) mission is to advance the long-term survival of bears worldwide by replacing misconceptions with scientific facts about bears, their role in ecosystems, and their relations with humans.
The NABC works closely with the non-profit Wildlife Research Institute (WRI) to create and update exhibits for the Bear Center. WRI’s world-renowned trust-based research methods allow close observation of wild black bears as they go about their lives. WRI’s video footage—which documents wild black bear behavior and food choices—helps keep the Bear Center exhibits fresh.
WRI researchers use nuts to radio-collar and maintain GPS units on wild research bears such as Lily and Jewel—using trust rather than tranquilizers. Quality nuts are essential to the success of this trust-based research.
Bear Center staff provides a wide variety of foods to the three resident black bears Ted, Honey and Lucky. Nuts are an important part of their diet.
Send these organizations this terrific 3-pound snack pack containing 1 pound each of the bears' favorite nuts—raw pecans, hazelnuts, and brazils.
