Help abused bears find sanctuary
Together with our partner organisation the Bioresource Research Centre (BRC), we arrange the surrender of baiting bears, and bring them to the World Animal Protection-funded sanctuary where they can live the rest of their days free from pain and violence.
With your help, World Animal Protection and BRC have rescued 86 bears since our work began:
- We have investigated and stopped bear baiting events, and are constantly on the lookout for others.
- We are improving enforcement laws and pushing for stronger legislation to protect bears in Pakistan.
- Every owner who commits to our alternative livelihood program signs an agreement never to own another bear - protecting ever more wild cubs from a future of violence.
Although illegal in Pakistan, bear baiting events are still being held. We are committed to permanently ending bear baiting and dancing.
