I am very excited to have been invited to join old friends and colleagues as they embark on plans to build a state-of-the-art education, conservation, and science institute dedicated to raising awareness for bears of Alaska on the campus of the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. This proposed interpretive learning center (B.E.A.R.S. of Alaska) will be a welcomed addition to the already spacious and natural bear enclosures that have drawn many visitors to the center, including many prominent professionals from zoological parks and other conservation facilities in the lower 48 states and from around the world. The AWCC does display and provide sanctuary for several North American carnivores, including two species of bears, rehabilitated wild canids and felids of circumpolar regions of the Northern hemisphere. They have been most recently recognized for their state endorsed and supported reintroduction of the functionally extinct (extinct in AK) wood bison, the largest, terrestrial mammal in North America. If you are interested in this project, please contact me at email@example.com.
