Fortress Of The Bear an educational bear rescue center located in Sitka, Alaska. We bring orphaned bears from all over the state of Alaska and find homes for them in zoos and sanctuaries internationally.  We currently have 8 resident orphaned bears in 3 separate enclosures.  These enclosures mimic the natural settings that they would normally be found.  Visitors view from above in a covered area and have the opportunity to observe and photographic their continuous antics.


Welcome to the Fortress Of The Bear shop!  Each of our items are exclusive and proprietary.  Our designs are mostly in house or local artists.  We are honored to share this beautiful town with First Nation people and we try to incorporate their art into our items.  We are lucky to have the artistry of Claire Turner, our bear manager, take the design helm.
