Care For Us – Sun Bears

Project Description

The sun bear is found in the tropical forest habitats of Southeast Asia. They are the smallest of all the bears and are characterised by their long tongues used to extract food, their strong sense of smell and very powerful front paws and long claws which make them very efficient tree-climbers. Sun bears do not hibernate due to living in tropical regions and are primarily diurnal (active in the day) but can be active at night for short periods. Their numbers have declined rapidly in recent years and they are classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN, due to large-scale deforestation and commercial hunting for the wildlife trade and body parts.
