Please enjoy our latest Bears' Print newsletter detailing major developments at our sanctuaries, achievements by our Research Programme, fabulous fundraising events and an inspiring message from our founder Dr Mary Hutton.


At the end of October we received a visit from HRH Princess Beatrice of York to the Tat Kuang Si Bear Rescue Centre in Luang Prabang. In November we rescued a record 12th moon bear in Laos for the year - he'd spent 5 years in a tiny cage without being able to stand. Our founder Dr Mary Hutton was also named on the Honour Role for the 2019 Australian of the Year Awards.

Prepare early with these great stocking stuffers:
(i) Beautiful Christmas cards featuring rescued bears and red pandas 
(ii) 2019 wall calendar will bring a smile to your face every morning
(iii) Santy the Red Panda hand puppet, hours of fun for any child
(iv) Dr Mary Hutton's signed biography, a fabulous read to inspire 2019
(v) Limited edition Free the Bears thongs (flip flops), super comfortable and durable

You can now dedicate donations, sponsorships or website gifts to loved ones. Just click "SEND AS A GIFT", then choose a bear themed E-card, enter your message, the recipients email address, and then check-out as normal.

Hurry - the 2019 expeditions are almost full. Join the amazing World Expeditions trip to visit our Vietnam and Laos sanctuaries, culminating in the opening ceremony of the Luang Prabang WIldlife Sanctuary in March. Alternatively join our VIETNAM EXPEDITIONS trip in September to help build our Vietnam sanctuary (and explore southern Vietnam).

With new facilities required for increased bear rescues and to prepare for bile farm closures, your support is greatly appreciated.

Thank you & bear hugs.
