Bears Matter Month

BMM 2015

In 2013 we launched our very first Bears Matter Month. This is a month of awareness and fundraising which runs from Valentine’s Day each year and which incorporates International Save Bears Day on February 21st.

During this month each year, the Winton Bear Foundation holds a number of awareness and fundraising events to help highlight the plight of all eight species of bear around the world, and our work, along with others, to help end their exploitation for profit and entertainment.

We are asking supporters and bear lovers around the world to organise their own fundraising events during this month in order to help raise funds for WBF to enable us to continue our vital work. If you’d like to plan your own event for this month, please let us know and we’ll give you as much support as possible.
