Bears are native to every continent in the world except Australia and New Zealand. Sadly today, not every bear gets to live freely in the wild. Many are forced to perform in circuses, are kept as baiting bears that must fight to survive or must pose for selfies with tourists.
Worldwide, there are many forms of cruel bear exploitation and abuse, and it is our task to intervene. Help us to end the keeping of bears in conditions unsuited to the species and support our campaigns and missions to Save the Saddest Bears!
our bear sanctuaries
We provide species-appropriate homes for rescued bears all over the world.
