Moon Bear

Moon Bear

We found our four Moon Bears accidentally while in Korea looking for other animals. We had some time to spend and decided to visit a closed bear Farm that had been turned into a bear park . with over three hundred bears to care for it was over crowded and many bears showed signs of stereotypic behavior. It was while we were there that we came across four bear cubs hiding in a dark corner of their den. These little bears were filthy and scared and while we couldn’t do anything to help the three hundred plus bears at the park, we did feel that we could do something to improve the life’s of these four cubs. Our staff quickly made arrangements to acquire these bears before they left the park and returned back to Dubai. Within a few months and many hours of paper work, four furry black bundles arrived in Dubai to start a new life without stress and overcrowding.

These four moon bears can now be seen in our Asian village where their days are full of exploring their large home with its pools and waterfalls, and their nights are time to relax and sleep in their AC dens.
