It’s well known that the moon bears at our sanctuaries love playing with each other and can be very sociable. But sometimes their play behaviours can be so human-like that it takes us aback.
When we saw this secretly filmed footage of sun bear cub Layla foraging in her enclosure, we couldn’t help but take a break from the usual #moonbearmonday.
With Tet break starting this weekend – it means a frustrating delay in the campaign to have a reported 23 bears released from bile farms in Vietnam’s Halong Bay.
The fight to save 23 moon bears in Halong Bay has been boosted with 12 ambassadors signing a letter to the Vietnam’s Prime Minister urging action.
For those with the qualifications and the compassion, volunteering at Animals Asia’s Chengdu Bear Rescue Centre can be the experience of a lifetime. Cara Wilcox volunteered with us in 2013 and has been kind enough to share some of her most treasured memories.
