Arcturos brown bears sanctuary in need of donations due to lockdown

Brown bears sanctuary Arcturos wildlife protection organization in northern Greece is asking the public for financial support following sharp revenues drop due to the lockdown imposed in the country. Visits have stopped and therefore the revenues, the organization said in a statement.

Arcturos revenues derive exclusively from visits to the environmental centers, the sales of its products and on subscriptions. 

Now that visits to Nymfeo shelter are not allowed, a significant part of this revenue stream has dried up and in the coming months, Arcturos will not have the funds to care for the wildlife and other animals at the shelter, the statement stressed.

The sanctuaries in Nymfeo and Agrapidies have currently 23 brown bears, 13 wolves, 25 Greek sheep dogs – which are a breed threatened with dying out – and one deer.

The cost of feeding and veterinary care for all the animals is approximately 12,000 euros per month.

“Every animal counts, every day counts, every euro counts,” Arcturos said in a campaign launched to collect funds.

Those interested in supporting the mission of the organization can make a donation here, become a member here (€50 or €25 for students) or make a virtual adoption here.
