Introducing RUFUS! Rufus is our newest family member and he is a 17 month old turkey vulture who isn't releasable. We also have a new bald eagle, also unreleasable, whose flight enclosure is next door to Rufus. (More on the eagle soon, he doesn't have a name yet and is settling in so I only have one very blurry photo of him, I didn't want to disturb him.) ANYWAY new video posted of Rufus on our You Tube channel, GO SEE!

(Here's the only eagle picture I have so far. More soon as he settles in!)

We are in desperate need of towels for our little baby orphans! We can also use linens, baby blankets, receiving blankets, small fuzzy blankets, or hand towels. So many babies to keep warm and clean and we need your help!

Please, if you have old towels, linens, small fuzzy blankets, or hand towels to donate, please call or text Alanna 705-716-6131, or drop linens of at Bear Creek Exotic Wildlife Sanctuary, 8633 10th Line (Essa Township) Barrie, Ontario. Thank you!

This time of year especially we count on these products and your generosity to get us through orphan baby season! Alanna has requested these three items as especially critical right now. You order them from our wish list and they get delivered straight to us! Thank you for your continuing support of our sanctuary!

Death is nothing at all. It does not count. You have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. You are you, and I am I, and the old life that you lived so fondly is untouched, unchanged. Whatever you were to us, that will always still be. We will call you by your name. Speak of you in the easy way which we always have. Put no difference in our tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed. Smile, think of you, laugh from you. Let your name be ever the household word that it was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is death but a negligible accident? Why should you be out of mind because you are out of sight? You won't. For every living being that has known you or met you, whether two legs or four, has a piece of you with them, always. Until there is no need to continue the legacy of the sanctuary you founded, you will need to wait, for us all to meet again.
xoxo Mary

All of the Bear Creek bears are awake! BooBoo (pictured) Baloo and Edna are still a bit groggy, but they're up for the season! Also pictured are our bear berry bags, ready to go for hungry bears! This also means that wild local Ontario bears are probably awake too, so keep an eye out on the road and make sure garbage, cat and dog food, and BBQs are secured. BooBoo is 23 years old.
