Bear Story – A Castle of Wood. A Playground for Bears

Bear Story – A Castle of Wood. A Playground for Bears
Post

Noah and Nano arrived at our Centre in October 2016 and November 2016 respectively. Both of them were rescued by the Sabah Wildlife Department and sent to BSBCC for rehabilitation.

Read the story about how Noah and Nano take their courage to step into the forest enclosure, a new journey for them after being rescued.

Noah is braver than Nano to explore the new environment. Instead of stepping out to the forest enclosure, he rather stays in the bear house. Hopefully one day he will be more courageous to go out.

Noah is now enjoying his life exploring in the forest.

Millions thanks to Woo Chee Yoong, Nur Athirah Binti Asrif and Batrisya Binti Teepol, students from UNIMAS who had just finished their 69 days internship in BSBCC.

The bears are barking out loud for saying thank you for the care and love that sharing for them. Three of you are just amazing and brings a lot of joy and laughter for the bear care team. All the best in your future. Please feel free to come and visit us with the bears in the near future.

Big bear hugs!!

Volunteer Story – My Time in Borneo

Volunteer Story – My Time in Borneo

“The volunteer opportunity is one of the most life changing experiences I have had in my life. I have had made lifelong friends at the centre and call the bear family at the BSBCC my second family, my home away from home. When I go home to Australia I spend most of my time dreaming about what I would be doing if I were in Malaysia at the Sun Bear Centre. ” – Shannon Samuel

Our Newest Arrival – Soo (Rescue Bear – 56)

Our Newest Arrival – Soo (Rescue Bear – 56)
Post

At 7.10 pm yesterday (8th September 2017), a two years and four month old, sub adult female bear who had been kept as a pet by a family in Tambunan village, located in the interior Division of Sabah, was rescued by Sabah Wildlife Department and transferred to BSBCC. Orphaned sun bear Soo (Rescued Bear No.56) was purchased from Sook Keningau market and kept as a pet for almost two years. She was fed with rice, milk and cucumber.

Huge thanks to Sabah Wildlife Department for rescuing Soo. She has now settled into her new home with close monitoring at BSBCC quarantine. We will ensure she has a safe and secure home at BSBCC. Sun bear population is at the risk of extinction in the wild. Please do NOT keep or support having sun bears as pets!

Unloading Soo from the truck and she was placed into quarantine new home.
