Visit the Romanian bear sanctuary.
If you go down to the woods today you are sure of a big surprise! That is if you go to the oak woods above the town of Zarnesti in Romania where the Libearty Bear Sanctuary is now open to the public.
The sanctuary has over 70 rescued brown bears all living a carefree life in the huge expanse of oak and hazel forests that make up the Libearty bear sanctuary. All of the bears were rescued from cruel and illegal captive conditions in Romania and now they spend their days lazing in the grassy meadows or playing together in the huge water pools. Some even climb the trees to sit and watch the action from their vantage point.
The sanctuary has now built a small visitor centre to welcome guests who want to see the bears and to learn about the history of the sanctuary. Visitors will join groups that are taken around the sanctuary by guides who tell the story of the bears. There is a small entrance fee and souvenirs are available to purchase. All their income is used to care for the bears and to rescue new bears.
If you want to make a visit take a look at the sanctuary website at: http://ampbears.ro/en/bear-sanctuary . During the summer time, the tours start each day from Tuesday to Sunday from 9, 10 and 11 AM. Please make your visiting reservations by calling the sanctuary main office in Brasov on: +40 268 471 202, or by email: email@example.com.
This is no teddy bears’ picnic – it is a real story of a successful project to protect bears in Romania. You won’t be disappointed. You can also read about it in the book – Bear Sanctuary.
