A new life for Xuan and Mo

*** UPDATE ***

Xuan and Mo were successfully rescued! On Tuesday the 23rd of March our team arrived in the Son La Province.

Luckily, the bears were quite calm and not afraid when our team approached them. Maybe they knew that we want to change their life for the better.

After a 10 hour drive, they finally arrived at their new home in our BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh.

Bears are very resilient, but it will be a long way to recovery nonetheless. Both suffer from gallbladder disease. Xuan additionally has liver disease and his teeth are in a bad condition.

You can still support their recovery. Will you help them to start their new life?


No light, no ventilation or fresh air, nothing but the rusty bars of tiny barren cages. Kept in a windowless and wet basement since they were cubs, bears Xuan and Mo have suffered unimaginably.  

The only time they get to see light is when their owner comes to feed them or worse: puncture their gallbladder with a needle, a painful procedure to extract their bile. This bile was used for medicinal purposes by the family of the owner. For years these bears have known nothing but pain and abuse. Without our help, Xuan and Mo will go through this cruelness until the end of their life.  

Our team is still shocked by what they discovered in Son La province, Vietnam. These keeping conditions are one of the worst we’ve ever seen. We have to get them out as soon as possible. Will you join this mission and support their rescue? 

They deserve so much more in life 

At our BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh, they could get all the care and time they need to recover from the horrors they have endured. There, they could discover for the first time what a species-appropriate life for bears can look like. But we can’t rescue them without you.  

The fate of Xuan and Mo depends on donations. Will you help us to rescue them?
