Hello everyone. Cynthia from Tucson!
Yes, we have.
Hi Colleen - it might be on your end? The screen is full on this end.
Lots of the bears have such individual characteristics! Different ears or moon crescents. They are all so beautiful!
Thanks for joining us, Elaine!
The team on the ground is really spectacular! We are very lucky - as are the bears.
Please enter your questions in the Q & A box! Heidi has LOTS of info to share!
We have a week long volunteer opportunity at VBRC. Feel free to reach out to us to learn more!
We have a sanctuary in China as well.
We have open days once a month. If you can let us know what days you’re visiting, we can let you know if it lands on one of our open days.
why was amy surrendered by the bile farmer?
Here you go, Annette! https://www.animalsasia.org/us/our-work/bear-sanctuaries/visiting-the-bear-rescue-centres.html
We’ve had one successful release in China. We would love to do more if it’s possible, but many of our bears are domesticated, so it would be a challenge to release them back in to the wild. Great question!
It would be pretty costly. We still have capacity at VBRC. Heidi can speak to the exact number!
Heidi, it's been SO wonderfull to hear you speak and to know firsthand of your love and tenderness for these beautiful bears!
Thank you everyone! We appreciate spending your evening with us!
Thanks everyone. Keep up the fantastic job.
Thanks to all of you who joined us!
Thank you so much for the wonderful work that you do!
Thanks Usha! We miss you!
