Pepsi Refresh Project

Pepsi Challenge

It's going to be a busy month here at IEAS! As you (hopefully) know, we're in the running to win $50,000 as part of the Pepsi Refresh Project. Remember, everyone can vote once a day, every day and we need to finish the top ten to win! We hope you are voting every day and if you're not – try it and see just how easy it is! If everyone votes, we can definitely make it into the top ten and win $50,000 for both the animals of IEAS and the wild Black bears that our education programs will help support. For more information, click here to visit our Blog or go straight to the VOTING page, here!

Meet Titan!

TitanAnd MORE exciting news from IEAS is that we have another new resident! Titan was rescued from the Kelly-Miller Circus, a traveling circus based out of Oklahoma. Richard Gilbreth, Executive Director, received a call on March 28 from the USDA saying they needed to find a home for a male tiger. Quoted by the USDA, "The tiger wouldn't perform for the circus. They needed to find a home for the tiger or the circus was going to make a rug out of him for their show." After hearing this, Richard and IEAS knew we had to rescue this innocent tiger. At the time, we just didn't know how fast we needed to act. The Circus was set up in Bridgeport, just 15 miles from the Sanctuary. Since it is a traveling Circus, they were leaving that night, so Richard and Roy headed to Bridgeport to rescue this tiger. The tiger was being kept in a 6X6 cage where all he could do is stand up and barely turn around. He was eager to get out of these conditions, as you could imagine, and is now much happier in his new habitat with a pool, grass, perches, a house, and lots of enrichment!

Quench Our Thirst Weekend was a HUGE Success!

Cases of waterAlso, a BIG thank you to everyone who brought cases of water during our "Quench Our Thirst" weekend! We collected almost 70 cases of bottled water! This adds up to almost 1,800 bottles of water! So incredible! This is such a huge sign of support and we can't thank everyone enough!
