There are many ways that you can make a difference in spectacled bear conservation that does not involve a cheque book or wallet. Here are some ways in which you can contribute.


Whether your skills lie in conservation biology, wildlife or environmental management education, marketing, photography, or graphic design, we need your help! We are looking for volunteers in both Canada and Peru. Please contact Jessica for more information at and learn how you can be part of the spectacled bear conservation team.

Equipment Donation

Field Equipment

Spectacled bears are tough animals and survive in extreme climates As a result, our field staff who live amongst these bears continuously wear out field equipment and a good portion of our budget is used to replace it. We would appreciate equipment donations such as tents, sleeping bags, thermarests, stoves, pots, tarps and hiking boots. If you have any suggestions on how we can acquire equipment donations or would like to make donations please contact Ian at

Office Supplies

Our conservation center was built in 2009, however due to limited funds we were not able to equip the center with the supplies that are needed. If you have any office supplies such as desk top computers, laptops, cell phones, printers and other office supplies that you or someone you know would like to donate please contact Jessica at
