Bears Unlimited, Inc. is a bear and wildlife advocacy and conservation organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the populations, habitat, rights, and welfare of both wild and domestic animals.

Additionally, we provide educational programs for school-aged children and are an active participant in the on-going discussion surrounding the effects of global climate change, animal welfare, and animal rights. Ultimately, Bears Unlimited seeks to advocate on the behalf of all animals and work towards preserving their natural habitats.
