Velga Vitola - the so called "Mother of bears" is a unique woman, pride of Latvia. She's vibrant, fascinating, full of passion and love for animals.
Our paths crossed when we were filming a short clip about her for a TV programme a couple of years ago. We soon realised that Velga is awe inspiring and her story ought to be shared; for a long time we have been trying to figure out a way of how to bring her story to you as we hoped you'd enjoy 'meeting' her as much as we did.
With our production budget being $0.00 we couldn't make a fully fledged documentary, although she most certainly deserves one.

In 2011, during 'Pride of Latvia' - biggest national event celebrating unsung heroes- Velga was nominated for and won 'The Kindest Heart' award! :-)
