We are an non-profit wildlife movement composed of highly motivated, strongly committed volunteers with a genuine love and concern for wildlife and the environment. Basically, we are pulling together resources and working with other non-profits to educate, facilitate, and rehabilitate. We will be having various events aimed at these objectives and are in need of a huge volunteer base. We just got started here and already our hands are full! This site will help us tremendously be able to touch our community and keep everybody updated on our progress and where we need them to volunteer.
We are always looking for opportunities to partner with other non-profit organizations around Mendocino County
and all of California. From the coast to the forest, we want to lend a helping hand.
The following are various non-profit organizations that we support.

The Hopland Research and Extension Center (HREC) is the University of California's principal field research facility for agriculture and natural resources in the North Coast region. A diversity of soils, plant and animal communities, and elevations makes HREC representative of many parts of the Coast Range in northwestern California. It is one of 9 Research and Extension Centers operated by the UC Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources which is administratively separate from the UC campuses. Many researchers who use the Center hold faculty appointments at UC Davis or UC Berkeley or are UC Cooperative Extension advisors located in California counties.
If their experience tells them they can expect to find food where humans live, with no resistance from those humans, then look for food they will.
If instead they realize that people will defend their ‘food caches and dens’ and not allow the bears to feel Welcome, they will not bother us.
When a person is fearful and runs from a bear (something one should never do) by retreating inside he is telling the animal “You are welcome here…I am not going to defend my territory”.
Too many bears now believe they can roam neighborhoods and even come into houses as this is what they have been told by humans reacting inappropriately during bear encounters, which often results in the death of a bear. Help us change that.
The Collaborative Network provides structure for addressing local ocean management needs.
