In late 2014 following a tip off, rangers in Cambodia discovered a tiny male sun bear cub in a small blue box hidden in an outhouse in Southwest Cambodia. He was only 3.5kg and named Blue.
Blue had trouble walking in his early days. He got tired after a few steps. An x-ray confirmed he had a spinal malformation. After 24 months of loving care, global veterinary advice and the encouragement of other cubs, Blue's strength grew and he learnt to walk.
These days Blue has no trouble getting around and lives in a giant forest enclosure at the Cambodia Bear Sanctuary with best friends Bearzilla and Alfie.
By sponsoring Blue, you will be helping provide for his daily needs - a healthy diet, health checks, enrichment activities and a lovely forest enclosure with climbing platforms, caves, swimming pools and hammocks. We'll email you a sponsorship certificate and send updates every March and September.
To sponsor Blue is AU$420 / GB£240 / US$336 / EU€264 per year - you can choose to make monthly, bi-annual or annual installments (if bi-annual or annual, we'd appreciate it if you could make it recurring to help our small team).
