Gift Membership & Subscription News


For bear lovers, give them the chance to become a bear carer and help rescued bears!

Posted on

This website is about gift membership but occasionally I hear of something which really touches my heart and today I want to share with you the need of rescued bears.

Free the Bears is 25 years old in 2020;  since they were founded, they have rescued 950 moon, sun and sloth bears.  They are cared for in sanctuaries in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. 

Many of the bears have been rescued from bear bile farms where bile is cruelly extracted from them for use in medicine.  They can enjoy life in sanctuaries where they can have a healthy diet, excellent veterinary care, and be enriched in their enclosures.  

Here's one recently rescued bear having his first swim at the sanctuary - he was caged for 18 years.  

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Free the Bears have lost many of their fundraising sources and of course they need an income to look after the bears they have rescued - and to continue to rescue more bears.  If a bear is in trouble, they will be there.  

So if you are looking for a gift membership idea for a bear lover, please could I suggest you give them the chance to become a bear buddy, a bear carer, a cub carer or a bear angel?  You donate by month, and donations start at £5 a month.  It's not really a membership as such, but think of the good your gift will be doing and how it will help bears! 

Free the Bears is a registered non-profit in Australia and more recently the UK.  

This would make a great gift for bear lovers and a bear necessity for the bears.
