BLACK BEAR CUB RESCUE/REHAB

$8,130 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 4 months
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. 

Please provide your name and address by email or private messenger to get your tax receipt.

First I would like to thank everyone for their generous donations to date. Funds are still needed, as CEI now has 2 bear cubs!!! Maskwa a female black bear cub was found and rescued by an amazing woman, Brandy Gienger after being hit by a vehicle. Maskwa was not orphaned, her mother and two siblings witnessed Brandy come to save her! Brandy drove 9.5 hrs to get to CEI so Maskwa could get the care she needed. The initial veterinarian bills are quite high, however Maskwa, who couldn't hold her head up when she arrived is now doing much better! Charlie, the little cinnamon cub, is thriving and has now moved to an outdoor enclosure. Maskwa is in Charlie's old digs and has branches and everything to climb on. Once Maskwa has fully recovered she will join Charlie outdoors. I have added a couple of videos and pictures for your enjoyment. Charlie's first experience in the water is priceless! Maskwa is doing so much better and has quite the appetite lol

EXCITING NEWS!!!! Forthe first time since 2010, an orphaned black bear (this baby is a brown hue) cub has been rescued by F & W from the Coleman, Alberta area and has arrived safely at the Cochrane Ecological Institute. "Charlie" (named in honor and memory of bear whisperer Charlie Russell) was rescued from a campground.

This is the first cub saved under the new orphaned black bear cub protocols approved by Alberta Environment and Parks this year.

Food costs to take care of cubs like Charlie run $3,000/year, and includes specialized formula to replace what his mother would ordinarily feed him at this age. Bear cub rehabilitation includes strict practices designed to avoid habituation and food conditioning.

Please help CEI reach their donation goal to care for Charlie and future rescued bear Cubs.
