Adopt a Sun Bear


The Sun Bear is the smallest member of the bear family and is only between 4 & 5 feet in length. These wonderful mammals, often found in the forests of Southeast Asia, are unfortunately in danger, being classified as a Vulnerable species. In fact, due to their short muscular build, small ears, and short muzzle they are often referred to as the ‘dog bear’!

With Sun Bear populations continuing to decrease, it’s so important that we all work together to help restore populations, and protect as many of these bears as possible. That’s why every adoption purchased helps us, and the Zoological Society of Hertfordshire, to protect our bears and conserve their future. For as little as £49 per year, you can adopt one of our lovable Sun Bears and support their future.

Your adoption package includes a personalised adoption certificate and a photograph of your chosen animal. You will also have your name added to our very own adoption board of honour!

Our adoption packages are a great gift for a friend or family member, or even as a treat for yourself!
