Rescued young sun bears live in giant playground

Healing the psychological damage of being poached is not easy, but the happy, natural lives of these bears shows new lives are possible.

While the six rescued sun bears in Animals Asia’s Miomojo Cub House all have different backgrounds, they also have something in common: they were poached from the wild as cubs.

From there some suffered as exotic pets for many years while others were intercepted by the authorities at an early stage. But all six were rescued by Animals Asia and started new lives in the green surroundings of the charity’s Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre.

This is when the real work begins: the daily struggle to meet the particular needs of each bear to give them the happiest lives we possibly can.

For bears rescued as cubs such as Murphy and Goldie this can often be relatively straight forward. These well-adjusted young bears have never known extreme cruelty. Instead they have grown up in a sanctuary surrounded by friends, with opportunities to express natural emotions every day.

They remind us that no matter how much suffering a bear has endured, we can give them the happy new lives they deserve. Over time, with constant dedication and the support of animal lovers the world over, we can heal some of the trauma and make their lives worth living.

Animals Asia’s Miomojo Cub House has been part-funded for the last 12 months by Miomojo – a responsible fashion company from Italy making gorgeous fashion accessories that don’t harm animals or the environment. Their Ethicool collection is available now.
