Bear Story – Take Your Time to Know About Soo Bear

Bear Story – Take Your Time to Know About Soo Bear
Post

Do you still remember the bear who has a sorrowful face, Soo? Good news, she had just recently finished her quarantine!

During her time in quarantine, she spends more of her time by staying up high. But she does have her favourite enrichment, Aussie Dog Ball. The Aussie dog ball is filled with her favourite food, dog biscuits and honey. Besides that, keepers are trying to introduce her many kinds of enrichment such as live tree branches, happy sacks and much more. But, she seems to like to play at night time where no one is around her. This is the reason we called her The Nocturnal. She is preferably active at night. We saw her improvement within the 30 days quarantine. She appreciates all the foods that we offer and she can be eating so fast.

Help free Lasah the elephant in Langkawi

Help free Lasah the elephant in Langkawi
Post

Lasah is a 37 year old wild born elephant who was captured and taken into captivity when he was a baby, separated from his mum and herd, and who has suffered in zoos, tourism and entertainment for over 25 years.

Lasah has been forced to work in a logging camp, lived in zoos including Singapore Zoo, perform in shows including in a popular Malaysian entertainment outlet and used in commercials and the 1999 film Anna and the King.

Eleven years ago, he was sent to the popular Malaysian tourist island, Langkawi and since then has been used by the profit-making Langkawi Elephant Adventures [LEA]. There, Lasah is used for elephant rides and lives all alone, which is devastati for a social animal like elephants. LEA also continues to offer Lasah for other commercial purposes on their website.

In July last year, activists exposed photos of Lasah chained on all four legs behind public eyes during LEA’s closing hours. In March 2017, eight months after the campaign for Lasah started, the Malaysian environment ministry said that Lasah is chained on two feet (when not exploited for tourist money).

Lasah has suffered for too long. This abuse must stop. Click on the link below to know what more you can do to help #FreeLasah.

Community Film Screening – “Tomorrow” documentary
Upcoming Event
9 Nov
20:00 - 22:00
Five Arts Center

“Faced with a future deemed by scientists as a great cause for concern where humanity could be threatened by an extinction-level event, the film TOMORROW showcases concrete examples of solutions to environmental and social challenges of the 21st Century, with a pervasive feeling of hope and optimism.

TOMORROW captures initiatives that have proven themselves across the globe, from citywide composting in San Francisco to a town in England that prints its own money, a village in India whose decentralised democracy reflects the residents’ priorities, urban gardening initiatives in Detroit and Todmorden, the renewable energy model and bike schemes in Copenhagen, Iceland’s pioneering response to political breakdown, and so on.

Transition TTDI, a local initiative for resilient and sustainable communities, invites you to a screening of TOMORROW, winner of the 2016 César for Best Documentary, a film to inspire the gathering movement of citizens committed to putting its practical, think-global-act-local solutions into practice.

– Film screening (duration 1 hr 50 mins, limited to 80 people, on a first-come-first-served basis) followed by a 20 minute sharing session on local action and community resilience.
