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

Rating: 5 stars  

The American Bear Center quite literally saved my sanity. Having booked a holiday from Britain to spend a month with my father, a resident of Ely, he sadly died before I arrived. Donna Rogers and the staff at the center offered me the chance to work with them for the month. For my grief stricken step-mother and I, it became a sanctuary to which I ran too every morning. I will be eternally grateful for their kindness and the extraordinary experience very few people from England ever get the chance to have. I tell everyone at the High school I work at, at any opportunity, all about the brilliant work that goes on and my office has become a shrine to three of the most beautiful creatures that I have ever had the fortune to share my time with. I am very proud of my bear educator certificate and will treasure it always. I hope to return as soon as I can to carry on as a volunteer.
