Bears About the House is on BBC2 is on July 15 and 22 at 8pm! Don’t miss it! There are record bear rescues, the first release of rehabilitated wildlife, many sanctuary developments and some devastating losses.
On 22nd July, Giles and his team head out to rescue David and Jane. They are two five month old terrified moon bear cubs who were taken from the wild. They go home with Giles Clark to have the 24/7 care.
There’s more news on Mary as she graduates from the nursery into her permanent home, taking a confident and determined approach with her.
And there’s devastating news as the team comes to terms with a break in and a theft.
The quarantine building is finished and the sanctuary is able to receive bears from bear bile farms in Laos, which the government there has committed to closing once they have somewhere that the rescued bears can go.
Don’t miss it – and if you can make a donation, please donate.
If you’re outside the UK, the series will reach you later this year, and meantime, lots of never before seen clips of Mary will be on Facebook, Instagram and Youtube.
The charity is registered in Australia and in the UK. There are a number of ways to help – just visit the website – including becoming a bear carer, sponsoring a bear, giving a gift to the bears, and a gift to bear lovers (humans) and of course donating.
International Animal Rescue have just launched their first brown bear adoption.
Wild bears are caught illegally every year – or they are trapped by poachers and they end up in small cages in restaurants and other venues across Armenia for so called public entertainment.
The bears are mentally and physically damaged by this existence – they are bored and frustrated; they have hardly any space to move around in. Their food is unsuitable and insufficient; and they have no enrichment to amuse them. They have no dignity and certainly no freedom.
Enter International Animal Rescue. They launched a campaign in October 2017 alongside their Armenian partners to help save the suffering bears of Armenia and make a difference to bears who’ve been rescued.
The bear centre rescue is run by their partners FPWC and it’s situated high in the mountains of Armenia. The bears have the very highest standards of care, there – they have enrichment activities and can spend their days splashing about in pools and tucking into their favourite treats. Of course, they want to return as many bears as they can to the wild – but sometimes that isn’t just possible and in those cases, they look after the bears for life.
International Animal Rescue rescued Max in 2018. He’s been locked up for 14 years – can you imagine? He was in a tiny cage at a bus depot with his companion Minnie.
Normally, International Animal Rescue rescue Syrian brown bears, found in the wild in Armenia.
Max however is a male Siberian brown bear. He’s half a ton in weight, so he’s the biggest bear International Animal Rescue have seen.
Max will never be able to go back into the wild. He’s had too many years in captivity and he’s a non-native species of bear in Armenia.
But International Animal Rescue have committed to look after Max and ensure his days are full of treats, love and naps!
You can help Max (and his friends) by adopting him to support his ongoing care from 14p a day.
Your adoption will help in several ways:
Pay for the lifetime care of Max and other bears like him
Provide veterinary care to nurse bears back to health
Maintain a peaceful and safe environment for the bears at our sanctuary
Reintroduce bears back to the wild where possible
Visit International Animal rescue here to adopt Max today, and be a part of the effort to care for these bears!
