Donations in kind

If you wish to make donations in kind, you can take a look at a short list, which we have prepared. It contains various types of food that can be easily stored and preserved, since we only have a limited storage capacity. You can also find materials on this list, which can be used to make objects, in which we can hide food and treats for the bears. This activates foraging behavior and keeps the animals busy.
