The team in Sumatra have just been involved in the rescue of a female sun bear from a snare in village farmlands. Farmers sometimes set snares to catch wild pigs that damage their crops, but this snare caught a usually-elsuive sun bear which had wandered out of the forest.
The team gave the bear a thorough health check in the field and decided that she was healthy enough to be released straight back into the forest - where possible, this is often the best option, and animals would only be brought to a rescue centre if they had injuries which would make it dangerous for them to be released straight back to the wild.
Please share this project with your networks, or make a donation to the rescue team today, to help them continue to be able to help animals in danger.
