When you think of it in details, it is not difficult to find out these bears actually have very sad life being pets for some human to start with. They were locked in small cages for all their life to amuse their owners . They were locked behind bars, and confined in small cages; they could either walk on concrete floor or iron bars; they never see the sky on top of their head, and never do what they design and born to do like other wild bears. Trees, soil, sky, sun, rain, and everything in the forest, to these bears, are something that have been stolen in their life from poachers and hunters .

All of our rescued bears have this kind of unfortunate life until we rescued them and moved them to our new bear house and forest enclosures. Even though they have access to roam the forest enclosure, years of confinement in cages made them feel like cages the bear house actually more safer then the outside world. They need to be taught that they are actually belong to the forest and the forest is their home.

Suria is one of our rescued subadult female bear. On April 23, we let them out to the forest enclosure for the first time. Wai Pak, our project manager, a.k.a, uncle bear, was site by site with Suria to gave her all the courage she needed to venture out to her new forest enclosure that we all work so hard to give them.

Step by step, Wai Pak lured Suria out of her den with honey. Wai Pak has gained Suria's trust since Suria was rescued by BSBCC more than a year ago.

Suria took a break after hours of excitement and exercise. The first day out for her mean a whole world for her.

Exhausted but happy, the joy of Wai Pak at the end the day was hard to express by any human language!
