Sonoma County Wildlife rescue is in the middle of a huge project, building a new 160 foot by 230 foot enclosure to house bear cubs, mountain lions or other large predators who need care. The current structure is far too small. Construction was estimated at $300,000, but has now surpassed $700,000… and they are about $300,000 short of finishing the project. The new structure will feature a natural habitat with trees, shrubs, logs and a splash pond, all designed to prepare the animals to return to the wild. If you would like to donate, contact the Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue just outside of Petaluma.
