Be a bear keeper

Hanuman’s Responsible Tourism portfolio already has a close relationship with the elephants of the Elephant Valley Project in Mondulkiri. Now we have joined forces with the Free the Bears Fund team who are doing fabulous work in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam to rescue and rehabilitate bears in the Mekong region.

Join us on our Bear Keeper For A Day programme where we get to go behind the scenes and learn what it takes to look after 100+ rescued Sun bears at the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre, south of Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh. You join the bear keepers in preparing food and enrichment toys which keep the bears happy and healthy in their forested sanctuary, as well as taking a look at the other endangered species at the Centre. Your personalized visit includes a traditional Khmer lunch and best of all, the opportunity to contribute directly towards helping care for bears that have been rescued from the illegal wildlife trade.

Direct contact with the bears is not possible as they are rescued wild animals and Free the Bears Fund want the bears in their care to enjoy as natural a life as possible. Nevertheless, you will be up close and personal with these wonderful animals and have a ring-side seat to watch them in their forested habitat.
