What about a Florida Black Bear? It’s easy with WWT Adopt-an-Animal program. When your class or scout troop adopts a black bear you are helping to maintain and preserve its natural habitat. If a big bear seems like too much to handle, there are lots of other animals to choose from. Animal adoptions make great presents for birthdays and special occasions too.
