Protecting Wild Camels:
YWPF work with Wild Camel Protection Foundation
to fund an environmental education programmes for communities who live near to their breeding centre, through schools and an education centre. Getting the support of local communities so that they want to help protect their camelid neighbours is crucial to the survival of Wild Camels.
Saving Ussuri Brown Bears:
We worked with our partners Wild Welfare
to improve the welfare standards of three Ussuri brown bears called Riku, Kai, Hanako and Amu. They were moved 5,400 from less-than-ideal conditions in Japan to Yorkshire Wildlife Park to live in a special Rescue and Rehabilitation Reserve. The bears were cared for through a specially planned nutrition and enrichment programme. Their story helped raise awareness for bear welfare and conservation, in captivity and in wild.
