Adopt a Black Bear

Black bears are the smallest of the three bear species found in North America. Black bears are fairly common throughout most of the continent, but their habitat is shrinking and fragmented, putting them into more frequent contact with humans.

How Your Adoption Helps Black Bears

Your adoption supports Defenders' work to encourage smart development to preserve bear habitat, and to help create safe wildlife crossings near highways. It also enables us to provide bear-proof trash containers and electric fencing to communities in bear country, so that fewer bears are killed because of conflicts with humans.

All donations support our work to protect and restore the wildlife and wild places you care about.
