Did you know that in the wild sun bears build a safe, comfortable nest to sleep in? Tree nests protect them from predators as well as serve as to be comfortable, safe places to sleep. This is one of the vital skills that their mothers would have taught them in the wild… Check out how one of our rescued adult female sun bear, Damai builds her comfy nest on tree!
Sun bears are well adapted to arboreal living. In the wild, they spend a lot of their time foraging, exploring, building nests and sleeping on the forest canopy. Most of our rescued sun bears love climbing high in trees and Wawa is no exception. She greatly enjoys regular outings to the forest and being a wild bear! We are impressed by her agility and balance!
Best bear friend are the bear in our life that make you you having a great time wrestling, sun soaked, enjoying nature’s beauty, forage for termites, learning all the skills pertinent to survival in the wild together, hang here all day, a chat with bear pals, bark louder and smile bright.
Sun bears play an important role in maintaining the ecosystem and equilibrium of the forest. They act as a forest doctors, forest engineers and forest planters.
