THE STORY:

Last spring the staff at Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch rescued two black bear cubs(Barnaby and Bailey) who were being exploited in the photography industry. They were in pretty bad shape when we got them at around 10 weeks of age. The previous owners are currently being investigated by the USDA. Our intent was to rehabilitate them and then find a bear sanctuary for them. Unfortunately, with the economy, all the sanctuaries told us they were full and could only take them if we could donate $20,000 to build them a habitat. We decided that if we were going to raise that kind of money, we would build them a habitat here, at Sharkarosa, so that this would be their last stop, their forever home. We have broken ground on Barnaby and Bailey's habitat and are 75% of the way there on Phase One of this 2 phase project(fyi the biggest project we have ever undertook). We're estimating that roughly 70% of the entire habitat will be made from recycled materials folks/companies are donating. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this! Our web site is: www.sharkarosa.com and we're putting regular updated pics of the habitat in progress on our Facebook page.
