Free the Bears 2022 Report
Hello coffee and bear lovers, 2021 was a great year for us at Brown Bear Coffee, our collective contribution of 5% of the sale made a big difference to Sun and Moon Bears in Cambodia. Free the Bears asked us in late 2020 if we wanted to fund a new project, something specific that would aid the number of bears they were able to rescue. This, for us was a fantastic opportunity and something we could demonstrate the effectiveness of our collective customer contribution.
The Bear House 7A and 4A has recently been finalised and the project is in the final steps. The House itself allows for an easy transition from the house to the forested area; this access is 24 hours, something that was a challenge before. With two separate bear houses with their outside enclosures means that none of the bears need to timeshare and they have 24 hour access to the outside, a massive improvement to their overall welfare and mental health.
Free the Bears has introduced the first few bears into the house's and Matt Hunt at Free the Bears has provided a bit of information to us on them below. Please enjoy the pictures and video provided and thank you for your continued support.
