Review for North American Bear Center, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have not been able to physically visit the Wildlife Research Institute and the North American Bear Center in Ely, but I feel as if I have. The research done by Dr Lynn Rogers and Sue Mansfield has been significant in opening the eyes of so many people around the world about the true nature of black bears. Along the way, Dr Rogers has taught us much about other wildlife in the area and the ecological consequences of many human endeavors...both positive and negative. We have also learned of the difficulties of dealing with the many misconceptions about black bears, even among those who should be the protectors of this wildlife resource. I donate as often as I am able to WRI and the NABC, and look forward to the long continuation of this research.

Review for International Exotic Feline Sanctuary Inc, Boyd, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have followed this organization for over a year...maybe closer to two...and feel this is a wonderful group that takes such good care of these animals who can live out their lives in the safety and comfort of a sanctuary that is HOME for them. I have supported them with small monetary gifts (as I am able to do so) and am always pleased to read the newsletters and see the pictures of the wonderful animals lucky enough to be there.

Review for Wildlife Research Institute, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have followed Dr Lynn Rogers' research and adventures with the black bears of Ely's Northwoods since 2010 when Hope was born to Lily. I see nothing in Doc's manner which would suggest any type of mismanagement. I believe he has brought awareness of black bears to many people all over the world, and has created a community of wonderful caring people who love the bears, and care for each other. Every one has their own opinions about...anything ... and may donate to ... anything ... they feel strongly about. I feel strongly that the research done by Dr Lynn and his assistant Sue Mansfield is important and well-documented by them, and by a legion of cam-watchers collecting minute-by-minute data about life in a bear's den.
