We have just handed over a 5000-signature petition calling for the ending of bear farming. What’s remarkable is that all the signatures are from residents of Phuc Tho, the largest bear farming hotspot in Vietnam!
Locals are clearly getting on board with the ENV bear farm messaging and are now calling on the area’s People’s Committee to finish off the industry once and for all. Currently, there are circa 170 farm bears remaining in the district, and we are working hard to get that number down to zero. Doing so would provide us with massive leverage to get other bear farming provinces to follow suit and give their bears a better life at a rescue center.
