We caught our mischievous Wawa smiling all the way as she enjoys in the forest with her bear friends! She is so happy to be free roaming in the forest !!
“I know I am free as I climb and play in tall treetops, the trees are tall, big and green! Play fight with friends! The wind blows through my sleek, black coat! Here in the forest, I am digging for favourite insects, looking for honey and beetles." This is where I truly belong- FOREST
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 bear, the world smallest bear, is also the most arboreal bear. But our rescued sun bears have been kept in captivity for long periods which cause them do not know the world beyond the cage bars and loss their survival skills that they need to learn in the wild. At BSBCC, they learned to climb trees, forage for food, make a nest, how to stay safe from predators and develop all the behavior they need to survive in the wild.
A climbing tree is an amazing and extraordinary achievement for rescued sun bears. You can feel how wild and special the sun bears can be! Sun bear belongs to the forest. The rescued bears just enjoying their new found freedom out in the forest where they belong. We cannot change their past, but we can help to secure and save their future.
Little Sika arrived in March 2017 and has been rescued by the Sabah Wildlife Department. A three months old female sun bear cub Sika was keeping in a chicken mesh cage as a pet after losing her mother. It is vital that sun bears undergoing rehabilitation at BSBCC are kept mentally and physically stimulated. Enrichment really is valuable to the life of rescued sun bear. They deserve a healthier and happier life!
Great to see Sika free from a life of pain. Little Sika wants to huge THANK YOU to our dedicated bear care team and volunteers work so hard to make a difference for these rescued sun bears and bring such love into their lives! She loves these awesome threats and toys! Please help to secure their future and be their voice!
