NORTH AMERICAN BEAR CENTER
January 18, 2014

GREAT place to visit. i was there in 2013 an will go again in 2014. the bear center has brought me back to journeys to ELY,MN after many years of not going there. NABC has given me a MAIN REASON for going again. TED, LUCKY, an HONEY are so interesting to watch an enjoy. the addition of HOLLY bear in DECEMBER gives added incentive to visit. ALL the bears are greatly loved an cared for.

ANY negative comments in reviews are by a couple people with personal vendetta against NABC an people who support the organization. please ignore their untruths.

i have donated to NABC an will continue to.

Bat World Sanctuary
December 25, 2013

I found this group in 2013. I knew nothing about bats an the role they pay in nature. Sad to say, I always thought bats were varmint before finding BAT WORLD. Thanks to them an their pictures, stories, an videos, I no longer have a FALSE outlook of them. I see them as important creatures that are misunderstood by a lot of people even now....

I have started donating to BAT WORLD, an will continue to do so. I will send a donation off to them when i finish this review.

One personal posting here is on a personal vendetta against this great group an should be ashamed to be posting her nonsense. I feel sorry for her. To go around posting lies an half truths only show how low she will go....(for her to say all the reviews here are by one person is idiotic)

THANK YOU Bat World for teaching the world (me) about these amazing creatures. I will continue to support you as you promote co-existence with bats.

I wouldn't change anything about them. I just hope their message gets to more an more people.

WILDLIFE RESEARCH INSTITUTE

THRU the LIVE den cams the world of hibernating black bears has been seen by the whole world. The past year over 1000 classrooms watched the LIVE cams an used them as stepping stones into other subjects. THANKS to WRI, there is worldwide interest in the black bears unlike ever before. Thru this interest NEW wildlife rescues an rehabs have been sought out an supported by these same followers. I KNOW because it happened to me.

I have been supporting NABC since 2010 since I found out about them via a tv report. Ive been there in 2010 spring an saw in person what a great place it is. I will continue to support them an their bear education. Its great to see the resident bears Ted, Lucky an Honey in their 2 1/2 acres. Bit even greater is seeing the videos an educational material on the wild black bears near ELY,MN. The black bear is a very misunderstood animal and NABC is showing the truth about the everyday life of them. On a sacle of 1 to 10 i give them an 11.

Been to NABC a couple years ago. It was a great learning experience. the educational value to learn about black bears is a 10 out of 10. they have 3 bears in a great 2 acre plus enclosure. it is worth the time to visit an enjoy Lucky, Ted, an Honey the 3 resident bears.

ive been to the center an met the resident bears, ted, lucky an honey. ive also followed the research bears since the first den cam. its been a very educational an fun learning experience. i knew very little about black bears, even though i had contact with them near ely, minnesota. i have supported an will continue to support both the north american bear center an wildlife research institute in their bear education to the world.
