Baby Moon Bear, From Farm to Freedom
Meet Smudge, a five month old bear cub born in captivity at a Chinese facility where bears are farmed under horrendous conditions for their bile.
The good news is that Smudge was born just a few months before Animals Asia began transforming the facility as part of Peace by Piece. Smudge is the last bear that will ever be bred in captivity on the site.
Peace by Piece / Animals Asia
Peace by Piece is Animals Asia’s new landmark campaign to help rescue and rehabilitate over 130 moon bears in Nanning, China. These bears have been kept in horrendous conditions – many trapped in tiny cages from birth – and farmed for their bile.
Peace by piece is the largest rescue of its kind ever undertaken, where 130 bears will go from farm to freedom.
Some of the 41 female bears could be pregnant with up to four cubs.
The farmer had bred the bears and extracted their bile for years, but had a change of heart when his daughter convinced him of the horrible cruelty of the trade. Animals Asia is taking over custody and care of the bears, leasing the land and facilities.
This will be the largest rescue of its kind in the world.
Animals Asia is now asking for your help to turn this farm into a home – peace by piece! Their mission is:
… to create a sanctuary and education center. By uniquely working with the Chinese Government, we will also ensure that this new sanctuary will provide meaningful jobs to the nine existing farm workers. We will retrain them to become skilled bear carers, at this new groundbreaking sanctuary. So, this isn’t just a bear rescue, it’s a landmark initiative to help change the hearts and minds of other farmers in the region.
Because of the size and scale of this rescue, Animals Asia is seeking your support. Your donation will help fund the renovation of the farm as well as the veterinary care these bears urgently need and the equipment and structures needed for their rehabilitation.
Please help provide the peace these bears deserve – and claim your piece of history in the making.
VISIT Peace by Piece / Animals Asia to find out how you can help, view a map of the new sanctuary, and to make a donation.
