As I was doing a random search of “sun bear” on the internet, the photos of Lailani, a sun bear cub born on Feb 25, 2008 at Friederichsfelde Zoo, Berlin, Germany, popped out from my computer screen. No double that out of eight species of bears, giant pandas are recognized as the cutest bears. However, if you have seen a sun bear cub, the smallest of all bears, I am sure you will agree with me that they are so cute and deserve our love and help to help them from all kind of threats, like the one in my post earlier- being killed brutally for food and aphrodisiac.
One big problem for sun bear conservation is that sun bear are not well known like other charismatic animals. Many people never heard about sun bear or seen a photo of a sun bear. I hope BSBCC and this website can show the readers and the world the most wonderful images and photos of sun bears, although sometime I have to post graphic images of this poor animal being cut into pieces by our own kind. We need to help them. Please help them.
