Animals Asia has rescued more than 500 bears from bear bile farms in China and Vietnam.
Once rescued their rehabilitation begins in semi-natural enclosures designed to encourage natural behaviours. For us, one of the greatest indicators of the bears welfare needs being met, is to see them “going wild” just as nature intended.
Moon bears love water – it cools them down, it’s a great place for wrestling and it’s a whole load of fun as this clip of Georges proves. Browse is any natural material that the bears can use for nest building, bedding and even eating.
Of course, they can get creative with their browse too. We think Holly’s new hair style looks great! Curious animals like bears can’t resist looking inside a sack – especially one made of natural fibres like hessian.
Iris begins ungracefully by flinging out the contents of this sack and then enjoys getting tangled up in the dried banana leaves inside.
