Moon bears, shelter Luang Prabang

20151208_101128 large20151208_101145 large20151208_101618 largeMoon bears are threatened by poaching. In spite of, sometimes successful, attempts to let the local population act as guardians against poaching, threats remain. These bears were saved from poachers, but can’t be safely released in freedom, so are kept at a shelter until that becomes possible. Just like is the case for many refugees, the chances of that happening during their lifetime are slim. They don’t seem to bother too much though.
