Charlie Russell Estate Fund
Bears lost their best friend May 7th, Charlie Russell.
Our hearts are heavy as Charlie passed away unexpectedly post surgery.
Charlie dedicated his life educating the world how to co-exist peacefully with bears. His selfless giving and sudden death leaves his estate severely encumbered.
The family has setup the Charlie Russell Estate Fund to ease the costs of the estate and continue bear rehabilitation.
100% of funding after $30,000 will support bear rehabilitation centers across Canada.

Tonight (Friday, May 25th) at 5pm MT, CTV News will be airing an interview with my Dad, Gordon Russell, about his brother Charlie Russell's life and work. I hope you have a chance to see it. If not, it will be posted on their Facebook afterwards.
Thank you for your interest and support! Have a great weekend.
Thank you for all the generous contributions. You can continue to help by sharing this campaign with anyone you know who enjoys the outdoors and/or has a passion for wildlife.
