While the main focus of Sun Bear Outreach is to improve the wellbeing of captive sun bears, we are happy to help all animals in need. Our empathy and compassion is not limited to bears.

Mae Boua Ngeun at ECC Laos

Our project in December 2023 and for the coming months, is to raise 80.000 USD to save an elephant! Her name is Mae Buang Ngeun, she lives in Laos and grew up in a beautiful place called the Elephant Conservation Center (ECC) where she leads a very happy life. But if we can’t raise the 80.000 USD she will most probably end up in some horrible so called safari park in China. Find out more on our webpage dedicated to saving Boua:

At the Orangutan Foundation International (OFI) in Borneo where we’ve built forest enclosures for the bears, we also built a large enclosure for Gulu-gulu, the cassowary, and we made many improvements to the cages of the gibbons, the macaques, the binturongs and the orang-utans.

At the Wildlife Rescue Centre of Jogjakarta (WRC), we helped improve the well-being of the 2 sun bears, but also financed the renovation of large dome cages for the macaques, the binturongs and the gibbons. We equally helped in the renovation of the aviaries for the eagles.


Volunteers making enrichment for the sun bears

In addition to the enclosures we build and the renovations that we handle, we also train the Indonesian staff to the notion of “animal welfare”. We welcome volunteers from around the world to come work with the local staff and have them participate in improving the day to day life of the animals that they are responsible for. Working together on making enrichment for the animals is a good way for foreigners and locals to meet and exchange. And in the end it is also good for the animals.
