Shoelace sponsorship


Shoelace has been in our care since March 2007, after he was confiscated from a hunter in Battambang Province, Cambodia. Shoelace was a skinny little cub when he first arrived however has grown into a strong and handsome bear.

He's a mischievous bear with a fun-loving personality. His excitement when awaiting treats reveals that Shoelace will always deep down inside remain the playful and energetic cub we met and fell in love with.

By sponsoring Shoelace you will be helping to provide for his daily needs - a healthy diet, health checks, enrichment activities and a forest enclosure. We will post you a letter containing a special sponsorship certificate with a photograph and information about Shoelace and the satisfaction that you have helped to make a difference.

Buy your very own Shoelace soft toy to go with your Shoelace sponsorship.

If you would like to give a Bear Sponsorship to a loved one as a gift (and make a one-off payment of AUD$420 per year or AUD$210 for 6 months rather than monthly installments), please email us directly on
