From March – December 2019, our donations will be going to Sun Bear Outreach, a not-for-profit organisation founded by Patrick Rouxel. It was created to improve the welfare of captive sun bears in Indonesia. They act directly where the bears are kept, raise awareness for issues that affect sun bears and reintroduce sun bear cubs to the wild.
This year we have helped to fund the build of a forest enclosure for rescued sun bears in Borneo and for the remainder of 2019, our contributions will be helping to fund the rehabilitation and release of a sun bear cub called Pampy.
Sun bears are classified as vulnerable due to their population being culled. Deforestation, the illegal pet trade, poachers and the cruel bear bile industry have all contributed to the decline in their numbers.
Sign up to our blog to follow the journey of the enclosure build and Pampy’s journey back to the wild.
^ From Nov 2016 – Feb 2019 donations were allocated to World Animal Protection, Breast Cancer Network Australia and Save the Children. The Karma Collective have been focusing solely on animal welfare projects from March 2019.
