Meet Borneo’s Sun Bears & the Hero Saving Them from Extinction
Native only to the island of Borneo, the cute, fuzzy sun bear is the smallest of the world’s eight bear species. It’s facing big struggles from tropical forest loss, illegal hunting for bear parts, and poaching to obtain cubs for pet trade. But one man—Dr. Wong Siew Te—has almost single-handedly kept the sun bear from going extinct in the wild, dedicating his life to their protection...and he joins us for this webinar live from Borneo! Expedition Leader Brad Josephs introduces Wong, a personal hero and friend whom he calls “perhaps the world’s most dedicated and passionate conservationist.” We’ll hear the story of how Wong established the Borean Sun Bear Conservation Center, which has helped realize his dream of releasing rehabilitated sun bears into the wild. While you may never even have heard of a sun bear before, after hearing from Wong, you’ll never forget them.
