February 14th – March 15th 2015
We are delighted to announce the launch of our third Bears Matter Month on February 14th 2015. This will be a month of awareness and fundraising which will run from Valentine’s Day to Mother’s Day (UK) each year and which will incorporate International Save Bears Day on February 21st.
During this month each year, the Winton Bear Foundation will be holding 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.
Note: Due to the fact that the date of Mother’s Day in the UK changes each year, for some years Bears Matter Month will last for longer than a month.
