Wilf and Elsie are recent arrivals at our sanctuary in Tam Dao, Vietnam, having moved there this summer via the Hanoi Wildlife Rescue Centre (HWRC). Although still in quarantine - as with all new bear arrivals - they've taken their first few steps onto the green and pleasant land of their new home.
Sarah Dempsey, Animals Asia's Bear Manager in Vietnam, said:
"It's been a joy to watch how quickly Wilf and Elsie have settled here at the center. They were quite shy and scared when they first arrived but have grown accustomed to their new home since then.
These last few days they're like completely new bears. They were much more settled and they relaxed so much they even fall asleep outside. So much so that when our bear workers went over to feed them, they didn't seem to be that bothered about coming inside for their food."
