  Imprisoned in cramped cages. Day after day spent pacing the concrete floor, gnawing at the bars and repeatedly rocking – a sign of the extreme mental trauma they endure. Fed on scraps of rotting or discarded food and with little protection from the bitter cold of winter or scorching heat of summer. Bears kept in cruel captivity suffer appalling conditions.

 

We must rescue these bears

 

Illegally held as ‘entertainment’ in private households, displayed outside restaurants as tourist attractions or suffering in shocking conditions in run-down zoos there are around 25 bears in Romania that desperately need to be rescued.

 

But the existing WSPA-funded sanctuary is now full. With no room at the sanctuary, rescue efforts can’t begin and captive bears continue to suffer. These bears have endured so much already, we must help them – and quickly.

 

Could you help build captive bears a safe home?

 

With a gift to WSPA’s Big Bear Build today, you could help us build the final extension to the bear sanctuary and provide a safe home for those bears that continue to suffer horrific cruelty. For many, it is the only hope they have of a life free from suffering.

 

The sanctuary extension is 80,000 square metres and will be big enough to house all of the bears that are still awaiting rescue. Clearing the land and building on one square metre costs just £3.10 – but it’s up to you to decide how large an area you could help get ready for the bears. Please give as much as you can today. 

Without you, bears could remain in cruel captivity

We are desperately concerned for the last 25 bears in cruel captivity. Rescue efforts cannot begin until we make room at the sanctuary. And if we don’t help these bears – no one will.

We don’t have long to raise the funds needed to complete the sanctuary. The build must go ahead as soon as the snow thaws in spring. Without your help, bears will continue to suffer. Please make a donation to WSPA’s Big Bear Build today.

Your donation will help WSPA to protect animals from cruelty and suffering, including those featured in this appeal. Thank you.
 
If you would prefer to make a donation over the phone please call our Supporter Services team on 0845 0777 500 during office hours. Thank you.
