Why We Won’t Let Endangered Moon Bears Die in Illegal Halong Bay Bile Farms

Moon bear Mara joined our sanctuary in 2007 as a dirty, starving and traumatised cub  discovered in a secret compartment under a passenger bus. Thankfully, the beautiful and fragile bear cub, weighing just 2.5kg, has been with us ever since – blissfully unaware of the fate that was so nearly hers. This picture was taken while she was making splinters out of lovingly assembled equipment – but one look at Mara's gorgeous face and healthy body is enough to melt any heart. Happy Monday everyone!

The practice isn’t just cruel, it’s driving these endangered moon bears to extinction, especially in Vietnam, a country where bear farming is rampant. And with Vietnam’s government sensitive about its image of presiding over a modern, rising economy, the time is ripe to bust up the bear bile farms."
