Thanks to you, the Holiday Match goal to protect bears through the harsh winter was met.
Colombo (my four-legged friend) and I are so grateful that we wanted to send a message of thanks to you, our incredible donors:
Thanks to you and other generous Canadians, we met our Holiday Match of $85,000 from Sakura's Hope Foundation and an anonymous donor, which means we raised over $170,000 in total! Thank you!
You ensured that the over 170 bears that call the Libearty Bear Sanctuary or the Balkasar Bear Sanctuary home, have the food, veterinary care and resources they need, while ensuring our critical work for bears can continue through the pandemic.
I am grateful for your support and excited about what we can do together for animals in 2021.

Since 2005, World Animal Protection has supported Millions of Friends (AMP) in creating the world’s largest brown bear sanctuary in Europe measuring 69 hectares. Located near Zarnesti in central Romania, the sanctuary was created to facilitate the legal confiscation of captive bears from poor welfare conditions. Its aim is ending the illegal practice of keeping bears in private and cruel captive conditions and ensuring the lifetime care of those bears.
