Compassion for the world's bears

The world's eight species of bears are in desperate need of psychic support and healing energy. Six of the eight species are perched on the brink of extinction due to human activities related to habitat loss and illegal trafficking and trade of bears and their body parts.

Bear Bile Tourism in Vietnam

There is a dirty little secret in Vietnam, and it's called Korean Bear Tourism.

ENV, a wildlife watchdog group in Vietnam, has documented busloads of Korean tourists visiting bear farms where they witness a bear bile extraction, taste bear bile wine, and buy products made from bear body parts.

Tiny Bear Cubs in Loving Care

Not all rescues end happily ever after, and even this rescue story that I'm about to post has a tragic note, because the mama bear was killed to poach the baby cubs.

Benefit for the Bears Music Concerts

For 15 years Caesar was locked in a crush cage too small for her large body. Today this is Caesar at the Animals Asia sanctuary. The intention of the Ursa Freedom Project is to liberate 9,000 bears who are still living in crush cages.

Work is underway to organize concerts in Los Angeles, San Francisco, London and other cities across the globe to raise awareness and money to liberate the bears from horrid crush cages on bile farms. A… Continue

Bear Bile Farming and Why it Must End

Posing as buyers and suppliers in the illegal wildlife trade, eco warriors have taken hidden cameras where some of the most heinous crimes against nature are taking place: on bear bile farms in China. Other Earth saviors have packed unhidden cameras when they've gone on rescue missions to record the conditions of the bears they save and the ones they have to tragically leave behind. These are their photos, their stories, and the history of bear bile farming.…
