MOKIUP - Sun bear - Cambodia (AUD400/yr OR 33/mth)
Mokiup is one of our greatest success stories, rescued from a tiny cage in 2004 in atrocious conditions with a padlocked chain around his neck. Covered in sores and starved, he was in such a poor condition 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 that! Mokiup is now a beautiful and trusting bear, always putting on a show for visitors, happy in the knowledge he is cared for and always safe from harm, thanks to our supporters.
By sponsoring Mokiup (AUD$400/year), you will 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 Mokiup and the satisfaction that you have helped to make a difference.
