These bear sisters don't have their mother around, so they live at Animals Asia's Vietnam Bear Sanctuary. Many of the cubs at the sanctuary were taken from their natural habitats after poachers killed their mothers for the wildlife trade.
Hunting and finding shelter are just two of the many skills mother bears teach their cubs during infancy. "Without a mother, they haven't learned many of the basic skills that they'd need for survival," Steve Jackson, head of international communications at Animals Asia, told The Dodo. "That, coupled with no safe place in Vietnam to release them, means Animals Asia makes a lifetime commitment to them."
The sanctuary is now dedicated to providing the care these bears need to grow up happy and healthy.
