Free the Bears information
Free the Bears operates a 'Bear Keeper for a Day' program to allow students and adults with a genuine interest in wildlife a better understanding of the Asian black bear and Malayan sun bear. Participants have no contact with the bears, but spend the day behind the scenes of the Phnom Tamao sanctuary learning the ins and outs of caring for the 130-plus bears being looked after here.
One- to 12-week volunteer positions are also available.
