Three illegal bears have been confiscated from the home of a bear trafficker in Nghe An, Vietnam in what was one of the toughest operations undertaken thus far by Education for Nature – Vietnam (ENV).
ENV, acting on information received from the public, pinpointed the location of the Nghe An farm, established the status of the bears concerned and prevailed upon the local authorities in Nghe An to act. After some foot dragging by the authorities since being informed in April, the matter was only finally resolved this week with the “voluntary transfer” of three bears.
A short movie extolling the better life for bears awaiting them at a rescue center has been released today by Education for Nature – Vietnam. The movie, along with a companion hard copy brochure, is being supplied to Vietnam’s remaining bear owners and local Forest Protection Departments in order to speed up the end of bear farming in Vietnam.
We have just handed over a 5000-signature petition calling for the ending of bear farming. What’s remarkable is that all the signatures are from residents of Phuc Tho, the largest bear farming hotspot in Vietnam!
