Bornean Sun Bear, Sepilok

This is one of a number of rescued sun bears at the Borneo Sun Bear Conservation Center in Sepilok. The world's smallest bear, the sun bear was once widespread in Borneo but is now under serious threat from habitat loss and hunting. They are used in Chinese medicine and are also hunted as food. The bears here are rehabilitated and eventually returned to the wild. We were able to watch them eat, play and sleep in an evironment very much like their home in the wild forests.
