A Behind-The-Scenes Look at a Moon Bear Rescue (SLIDESHOW)

A Behind-The-Scenes Look at a Moon Bear Rescue

On Tuesday, November 29th, 2011, the Animals Asia Foundation rescued 14 Asiatic Moon Bears from a bear bile farm in southern Vietnam. One Green Planet contributor Maya Gottfried wrote about the rescue while We Animals photographer Jo-Anne McArthur was on site documenting the amazing work of the AAF during that time.

This gallery of images gives us a behind-the-scenes look at AAF’s work after the rescue, as well as some intimate portraits of some of the beautiful furry residents at their Tam Dao sanctuary in Vietnam.

I visited the Chengdu sanctuary in October 2011 and had the privilege of seeing these beautiful rescued Moon Bears and witnessing a health check. We were also taken round the sanctuary and saw behind the scenes of this incredible charity. The work that Animals Asia is do, and what struck me is their professionalism and the way they are sharing their knowledge with other animals organisations across Asia. These photos are beautiful and really capture how beautiful these endangered Moon Bears are.
