In addition to our actions in Indonesia to improve the well-being of captive animals, we work at raising awareness, locally and internationally, on wildlife conservation and preservation of the environment, in particular that of the tropical rainforest.

We intervene in schools in France, Indonesia and Singapore. We screen films like Tears of Wood, Green or Life is One (directed by Patrick Rouxel, founder of Sun Bear Outreach). Sometimes we show short films on the work we do in Indonesia. We try to inspire the students by what we do and trigger them to take action.

In collaboration with Dr Gabriella Fredriksson who runs the educational centre called Kawasan Wisata Pendidikan Lingkungan Hidup (KWLPH) next to the city of Balikpapan in East Kalimantan Indonesia, we made a film called Beruang Madu (Honey Bear) specially done for the Indonesian public. Beruang Madu is screened several times a week at KWLPH and seen by more than 1000 children a month.

Also, thanks to the large forest enclosures we build in the sanctuaries, the visitors can now observe the sun bears in their natural habitat rather than in a cage. They are generally very happy to see the bears climb trees or appear from the undergrowth and come close to the fence to disappear again in the forest. Observation of the sun bears in the forest enclosures allows the visitors to see with their own eyes how well the bears blend in the rainforest and thus how important it is to preserve it.
