Bears in Mind logo
Bears in Mind is a foundation with its own board and works with a number of employees and volunteers. The project committee selects the projects to be supported.

History
Bears in Mind was founded in 1993 as ‘Stichting Berenbos Rhenen’ and later ‘Alertis’, to run the project the Bear Forest as well as several other bear shelter initiatives. Over the years Bears in Mind’s scope has been broadened to include not only bear welfare projects but also nature conservation, scientific research and education & awareness. Today, Bears in Mind is an internationally recognized bear conservation NGO that uses its knowledge, expertise and financial assets to protect bears in the wild and help captive bears in need.

Sustainability
As a small foundation we strive to minimize our Carbon Footprint. We limit the use of paper, our office paper is FSC certified and our newspaper ‘De Berekrant’ is printed on recycled paper. The paper edition of this bulletin will gradually be replaced by a digital edition.
