A working day as expensive suit for BSBCC

 Sun bears are the smallest and least known  members of the bear species. Their populations are rapidly diminishing in Southeast Asia. Habitats are being destroyed by deforestation and sun bears are being brutally killed for commercial exploitation. Baby sun bears are one of the cutest young animals in the world. After their mothers are killed, they are captured as pets and are locked in tiny cages. This is where, as they grow, life in hell begins.The mission of the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre (BSBCC) in Sepilok, Sabah, Malaysia is to rescue these captured sun bears, promoting sun bear conservation in Borneo through animal welfare, conservation, rehabilitation, research and education – to put a stop to these cruel practices.There are currently 33  rescued bears living at the BSBCC.  Sadly, many of them have already spent too many years locked up in cages and their distress and suffering is clear.  But, day by day, we strive to improve their lives and eventually introduce them to the forest once again.
