$4,970 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 25 days
Created April 26, 2018
I am a member of Russell's Private Advocacy Group, a group that has been advocating for change to allow Alberta Wildlife Orphans to be RESCUED and REHABILITATED. 

Our goal is to raise a $25,000

Funds  raised will go to the Cochrane Ecological Institute ( http://www.ceinst.org).
CEI is the only facility in Alberta currently able to rehabilitate Black bear cubs.  CEI is a family and volunteer run Charitable organization founded in 1967 they receive NO government funding. Your donations which are tax deductible, will be the LIFE BLOOD for Orphaned Black bear cubs.

Funds raised will greatly assist in meeting the requirements outlined by Alberta Environment and Parks, at an onsite meeting with
Clio Smeeton.   Before AEP will release any cubs to CEI’s care the following requirements and/or upgrades are needed IMMEDIATELY!

BLACK BEAR ACCOUNT – Surety that there is ALWAYS SPECIFIC money available to keep, care, and feed all the orphaned black bear cubs being sent to CEI for rehabilitation.

Window tinting -  10 - 4 x 6 foot windows – so bears can be seen through the tinted glass by the people looking after them but the bears can’t see humans.

Upgraded fencing – wood and exterior paint and also Marine Blue enamel paint for outdoor uprights.

Weldmesh – wildlife fencing

Interior white paint – for the indoor bear nursery

Upgraded water Features –Bentonite Clay, Plastic pond structures, pond lining, gravel and stones

Due to the tireless efforts of many, Black bear cubs can finally  be rehabilitated in Alberta. As of April 18, 2018 the Black bear protocol was changed to allow Black bear cubs under 12 months to be rehabilitated not euthanized.

We are working directly with CEI.

Thank you, for your generous donations in one week we have raised $1,305.00, this is a great start.
Because of your donations, CEI has been able to purchase some of the materials that are required to upgrade the bear enclosures.
Volunteers are being organized for this weekend to put those materials to good use for Alberta’s Black bear cubs.
Remember; it is not within the Mandate of the Alberta Environment and Parks to rescue injured or orphaned wildlife. Wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release is undertaken by WILDLIFE REHABILITATION FACILITIES, all of which are staffed by volunteers and funded through donations.

If you wish to make a donation and do not want to do so online, a donation can be mailed to:
Cochrane Ecological Institute
PO Box 484
Cochrane, Alberta
