BSBCC can be found in Sepilok near Sandakan in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. They rescue, care for and, if possible, release endangered Sun bears back into their natural environment. Often overlooked next to the neighbouring Orangutan rehabilitation centre, BSBCC does some really fantastic, honest and important work for this wonderful yet threatened species. I was lucky enough to visit in 2016, meet the bears, and chat to founder Wong Siew Te.
