Approximately 1300 bears are suffering on bears farms across Vietnam. Kept in tiny cages where they can barely move or walk, the bears are malnourished and dehydrated – some still exploited for the illegal bear bile trade.

This is why FOUR PAWS – together with our local partners Education for Nature Vietnam (ENV) and World Animal Protection – is taking action to end bear farming in Vietnam once and for all. 

And why we’re building our own bear sanctuary in northern Vietnam. 

We’ve laboured for years to start building this sanctuary, and phase one of construction will be finished this year. Once the first phase is completed, the BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh will house 44 former bile bears, with four enclosures filled with grass, pools and enrichment. In the future, the next phase of building will create room for a further 56 bears100 bears in total.

The sanctuary will soon be able to take its first bears, offering them a species-appropriate home. But we’ll need all the support we can get.

Will you donate today? Your gift could help give bears like Hy Vong a second chance at living in the sun and grass, and help many other animals in need around the world. Thank you.
