Bear Creek Exotic Wildlife Sanctuary in Barrie, Ontario, Canada, was founded in 1989 by Werner Ebner. We are a volunteer driven Private Foundation Registered Charity. We provide a safe haven for unwanted, abused and injured exotic and zoo surplus animals. We are authorized wildlife custodians through the Ministry of Natural Rescouces and Forestry. We rehabilitate injured, orphaned and indigenous wildlife. For many of the animals here, Bear Creek was the last resort prior to euthanasia.


We have a volunteer program, cooperative education programs, we have a Caretaker for a Day program, do corporate retreats, and have outreach programs. For information on these programs please see our
Programs page or call Mary, 705-721-4730

You can donate to Bear Creek through our PayPal account, through our Canada Helps account, and through Interac E-transfer. Links are on our Donate page.
