“We are grateful that the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund was able to help ABR care for the cubs orphaned due to the mass crop failure.” – ABR Board President Jack Burgin

On December 30, 2011, it was announced that the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund gave a $5000 grant to the Appalachian Bear Rescue (ABR). This grant was to help the ABR in its mission of assisting the feeding and care of orphan bear cubs within the organization. In 2011, due to a shortage of food supplies in the wild, ABR took in 33 orphaned black bear cubs; ABR will take care of these cubs until they are able to return to the wild.
