At the Sun Bear Sanctuary of BOSF Samboja Lestari, Kalimantan in Indonesia, Enclosure D is now almost complete and fully paid for. It will be the new home for 3 bears who have spent most of their lives in small cages: Petung, Windi and a third bear to be determined. They will be transferred into Enclosure D in January.
All the 13 bears in the Enclosures A, B and C are doing well. There are still a few difficulties in making groups who get along, so we continue moving the bears around to try find the perfect match, but overall the bears all go out in the forest of the enclosures and enjoy a much better quality of life than they had before.
After the New Year we will also begin construction of Enclosure E of 0,95 Ha, for another 4 bears. We still need about 5 000 € to complete the budget for this new enclosure and hope you will be able to help fill in the missing funds. Thank you for supporting Sun Bear Outreach in its mission to improve the wellbeing of captive sun bears in Indonesia.
