The shelter for young bears was built with the aim of preserving bears in the Velebit area and is open to visitors during spring, summer and autumn. Since bears are dormant during the winter, they are avoided and the visits are exceptional if they are really necessary. During the spring and autumn, visitors should report to the Volunteer Station upon arrival, so that one of the long-term volunteers can welcome, guide, guide and inform them. In summer, local guides will welcome, inform and animate you. If you love animals and would like to volunteer, the Velebit Open-Handed Shelter welcomes volunteers. In the last few years, the Kuterevo Shelter for Young Bears has hosted an average of 15 volunteer groups, more than 50 individual volunteers and more than 20,000 visitors a year.
