Libearty Bear Sanctuary

The Libearty Bear Sanctuary was on must see list for some time now, and we just got around this weekend to pay it a visit.

A Bear Sanctuary is a place of shelter and protection where bears rescued from years of suffering in captivity can live out their lives in a natural forest habitat. Large forested sanctuary enclosures, surrounded by protective fences, provide the bears with a safe forest environment allowing them to display natural behaviours such as foraging for food, swimming in pools, climbing trees and even hibernation.

The bears are rescued from a life of captivity in small cages where they have been kept as pets or curiosities, or from run-down zoos.

The Libearty Bear Sanctuary is situated in the oak forests of the Carpathian Mountains, above the town of Zarnesti in central Romania, this sanctuary provides a home for bears rescued from cages outside restaurants and petrol stations, where they were used to attract customers, and from zoos faced with closure.

It’s an amazing story and the work these people do is priceless. If you want to find out how you can contribute to the sanctuary or just learn more about bears visit their website – http://bearsanctuary.com.

40% of bear population in Europe are found in Romania. Let’s protect them!

Have a great week!
