"Physically and mentally the most challenging and most rewarding thing I have ever done. Life-changing!"
Nicola Morris Vietnam Moon Bear Challenge Trekker, 2009
In countries across Asia, thousands of bears live a life of torture on bear farmes, so that their bile can be extracted and used in traditional medicine to cure ailments ranging from headaches to haemorrhoids. Bears are confined in cages which vary from agonisingly tiny "crush" cages to larger pens, all of which cause terrible physical and mental suffering.
