Moon Bears, also know as Asiatic bears, are instantly recognisable due to a crescent moon shaped yellow patch of fur on their chest which contrasts with their otherwise dark black fur. They are expert climbers and forage for food amongst fruit trees, as well as feeding on leaves, nuts, berries, insects and small mammals.
They can be found in 18 countries from Iran to China, mainly in forested regions. They are classed as vulnerable on the IUCN’s red list due to habitat destruction, poaching and wild bears being taken in to captivity and farmed for Chinese medicine. There has been a 31% decline in their numbers over the past 30 years.
Funds from your adoption support the lifetime care of rescued bears at Animals Asia’s sanctuary in China. In addition, the funds go towards rescuing Moon bears across China, and campaigning against the cruel practice of bear farming.
