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'll be contributing to providing 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 Blue and the satisfaction that you have helped to make a difference.
You can choose to sponsor Blue for either 6 months or a year (you can also send this as a gift to a loved one). Or better still, sign up for monthly recurring payments to show your commitment to providing Blue with ongoing care (and helps us budget for his care throughout the year).
Please note: If you select the monthly payment option, the signup form will show AUD$35 monthly charge HOWEVER this will be converted to your local currency when charged to you. AUD$35 is approximately USD$24 or approximately GBP£18 or approximately EUR€21.5, as at November 2019. Monthly sponsorship contributions will be deducted automatically and you are able to cancel at any time by logging onto your account. Thank you for your ongoing support, we really appreciate it.
