Since 2005, World Animal Protection has worked with a local partner Asociatia Milioane de Prieteni (AMP) in creating Europe’s largest bear sanctuary. Located near Zarnesti in central Romania, the sanctuary was created to facilitate the legal confiscation of captive bears from poor welfare conditions with the aim of ending the illegal practice of keeping bears in private and cruel, captive conditions and ensuring the lifetime care of those bears.
In Pakistan, bears are cruelly forced to perform on the streets after having been cruelly trained to dance at the sound of a musical instrument. In 1997, World Animal Protection joined forces with the Pakistan Bioresource Research Centre (BRC) to bring a permanent end to the tradition of bear baiting and dancing by reducing the number of baiting events, improving the animal welfare laws in Pakistan and to make sure all known bears used for entertainment are rescued and housed appropriately at BRC’s sanctuary in Balkasar. All 48 bears at the sanctuary get to live peacefully in natural enclosures and socialize with other bears.
