Mokiup is one of our greatest success stories. He was rescued from a tiny cage in 2004 in atrocious conditions, chained by the neck with a padlock. Covered in sores and starved, he was in such a poor condition that he was affectionately named Mokiup (pronounced mook-yup), which roughly translates as "ugly-face" in Cambodia's native language, Khmer.
Over a decade later and no one would call him ugly! Mokiup is now a beautiful and trusting bear, always putting on a show for visitors, happy in the knowledge he is cared for and will always be safe from harm, thanks to you.
By sponsoring Mokiup, 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 Mokiup is AU$420 / GB£240 / US$336 / EU€264 per year - you can choose to make monthly, bi-annual or annual installments.
