Welcome to Montana Grizzly Encounter; a Grizzly Bear Rescue & Education Sanctuary in Bozeman, Montana. Founded in 2004, it provides a spacious and natural home for rescued grisslies. At the same time it provides a place where the public can come and learn about grizzly bears as they watch the majestic animals "up close" in a beautiful mountain setting.

All of our bears were born in unfortunate captive situations and could NEVER be released into the wild. The bears have been rescued from often inhumane captive situations all over the U.S.

We give the bears the best possible life here at the sanctuary. We give people an opportunity to see and understand this awesome creature safely, up close with no cars of cages to obstruct the view. The Grizzly Encounter is open to school groups free of charge and each year thousands of children learn about grizzly bear safety and conservation.
