I am pleased to announce that the beneficiary of the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Cause <http://www.causes.com/causes/95651> has changed from Wildlife Direct to Land Empowerment Animal People (LEAP), an NGO that is based in both Sabah and US. With this change, LEAP will help BSBCC collect all the donations from this cause. LEAP is the "mother" of BSBCC who gave birth to this project to help save sun bears in Borneo. Over the past few years, the LEAP team in both Sabah and USA have been working around to clock to help us secure funding, facilitate fund raising efforts, and running the project on the ground. I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Wildlife Direct and LEAP for their help to bring a better future for sun bears.
Today I am surprised and happy to see the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre facebook causes has successfully recruited 3,350 members. This number means a lot to us because the sun bear, being the least known bear and a forgotten bear species, has at least three thousand people across the world aware of their plight and our work to help sun bears from suffering and disappearing from the wild.
Thanks to all of you, we have come this far. Please continue helping us to spread the word about sun bears and our work. By simply repost our bulletins and blogs on your facebook or other networking tools, you are helping sun bears by raising the conservation awareness and the plight of this little cute but unknown bear species. Even better, actively ask your friends to join this cause so that they become a member of the sun bear family too! Additionally, you can help us raise funds to help the sun bear from your birthday wishes!
I know all of you love sun bears. I am sure that the sun bears love you too. With the completion of Phase 1 of the project last month, we are leaping a big step forward to help sun bears. Your support is always needed to help us bring a better future for the sun bears.
Besides this facebook cause<http://www.causes.com/causes/95651> , we also have a twitter page for BSBCC at http://twitter.com/BSBCC_SunBear.

Big sun bear hugs,
