LAND EMPOWERMENT ANIMALS PEOPLE's Fundraiser:

Siew Te Wong, Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre

LAND EMPOWERMENT ANIMALS PEOPLE's Photo

THE STORY:

Siew Te Wong, a wildlife biologist in Malaysia, has dedicated his life to protecting the sun bear, the world’s smallest bear. With its population declining, due to threats like habitat loss and poaching, Wong founded the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre -- the only sun bear sanctuary in the world. Known as ‘Papa Bear,’ Wong and his team have rehabilitated and cared for more than 50 bears since 2008, and his nonprofit now educates the public about these animals.

Wong is one of the most inspiring people I have ever met. I am so hopeful that he becomes CNN HERO OF THE YEAR - he has dedicated so much to saving sun bears and their rainforest home. He knows that just as polar bears have taught the world about climate change, sun bears can save rainforests - ecosystems that we all need for clean air, water, and biodiversity. 4 months ago
