New cubs require specialist care. The cub care kit includes special milk formula to feed the cub, bottles and sterilization solution, fluffy towels to keep her warm & wrapped up, and hot water bottles to help replace the warmth of her mothers body.
Sadly, many of the bears we receive are bear cubs. Hunters and poachers kill the mothers in the forest and then try to sell the cubs, which are unable to escape or put up a fight.
Without a mother to teach them to live in the forest, and without protected forest for them to live, we're likely to have the bear at the sanctuary for it's entire life, which can be 30-40 years.
