Four big natural outdoor enclosures, two bear houses, a quarantine area and a veterinary clinic form the frame of BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh. An experienced team, including a veterinarian, currently takes care of 25 former bile bears and 2 bear cubs rescued from the illegal wildlife trade. Within the next few years the sanctuary will be expanded to 10 ha and will provide a species-appropriate home for around 100 former bile bears.
