BEAR HUGS IN THE LIBEARTY BEAR SANCTUARY IN ROMANIA
The Romanian bear sanctuary’s new 8 hectare forest enclosure is nearing completion. The entire perimeter fence has been put up and work is starting on the large fresh water pools and perimeter access roadways. If all goes to plan the sanctuary will soon be able to start rescuing the remaining captive bears which are illegally held in private cages or in zoos that are unable to provide an adequate environment for their bears.
The Romanian sanctuary, known locally as the Libearty Sanctuary, has recently brought in a new manager – Mr. Liviu Cioineag – who aims to use his past experience of working with the Romanian media to rescue the remaining captive bears and to create a public awareness campaign to prevent new bears from being caught from the wild and kept in illegal captivity. Liviu is also working on some exciting new projects aimed at raising much-needed funds for the Libearty sanctuary. They have a brand new web site and there is loads of new information about their rescued bears on their Bear Adoption pages – so please do take a look - http://www.ampbears.ro/en/adopt-a-bear
