Happy #MoonBearMonday from the highest point of our Vietnam sanctuary!
Since her rescue in 2010, Xin Xin has taken her rehabilitation one step at a time. She's seen off her demons, fought her way back to fitness and climbed her own ladder of success.
Rescued as a cub from Dien Bien Province in northwest Vietnam, Xin Xin has had ample time to survey her kingdom. A climb like this would have been unthinkable for Xin Xin back when she was a three-month-old skinny newcomer to Animals Asia's Vietnam Bear Rescue Center - rescued on the way to a bear bile farm, where she would have faced daily painful extractions. Then she weighed all of 4 kilograms (approx. 9 pounds).
