Profits from the sale of Sun Bear Sunscreen go to Dr Wong Siew Te and his team at the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre. The Sun Bear Team have been to see Dr Wong has his team on several occasions now and every time have been blown away with how dedicated they are to saving the Sun Bear. But each time it has been clear they are facing an uphill battle and there is so much more that can be done.
Dr Wong and his team will use the funds raised through the sale of Sun Bear Sunscreen for a series of special projects. The focus of these projects will be release and research activities.
The sanctuary is currently over full and needs to immediately release bears but there are no funds to facilitate this. To release Sun Bears, a helicopter is needed to fly to a mud volcano in the most remote part of the forest. This will give the bears the best chance for survival. They also require satellite collars and a big team to physically carry the bears further into the forest before their final release.
The Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre is also trying to raise funds to create a specialist Sun Bear research base that will be located in theÂforest where the bears are released.
There is still so little known about this species that this research baseÂ\ is crucial to the bears' and rainforests survival.
