The end of a big lie

Fix a bear home

The goal of this Project branch is to both prevent and suppress the illegal Asian Black bear cubs/parts trade in the Lazo district of the Russian province Primorye.

More about this Project:

Dear visitor! If you'd like to better understand us and our work, then we recommend that you start from checking yourself - by answering following questions:

1. Who are these three: the Asian black bear (ABB), the Himalayan bear and the moonbear?

2. Where the Primorye is?

3. What are the main ecological differences between ABB and his brown brother?

4. Which problems do the ABBs have with rearing of young and with hibernating in the contemporary Primorye?

5. How can people help ABBs to be safer in cold Russian winter times, and also to bring up the young - in their warmest and safest tree-shelters?

Check yourself:

Who are the Asian black bear (ABB), Himalayan bear and the moonbear?

These all are synonymous names for only one same bear species. These names are discussed in the beginning of the other paper, which we keep here: The Asiatic Black bear of Primorye. By the way, did you know that a total 8 bear species live on the Earth today? ABB is included in the International List of Endangered Species. But it makes no sence to us, because we never intend to hurt any being, no matter in which list last is included.

Where the Primorye is...

See map in the above article.

What are the main ecological differences between Russian moonbear and his brown relative?

The key aspects of ABB's biology in Russian Primorye are reviewed (and key photos are presented) in the same article, where you saw the map etc. We recommend now that you explore remaining chapters of this paper (if you're yet not familiar with ABB's biology, of course). Make special emphasis on Shelter and rearing of young! Next: compare that you've learnt about AAB's ecology with what you know about brown bears.

Which problems do the ABBs have with rearing of their young and with hibernating in the today's Primorye?

Once again, you'll find answers in the mentioned writing (see "Bear hunting" in Part 1 and, also, whole Part 2 of this paper).

How can people help ABBs to be safer in cold Russian winter times and to bring up their kitten-size cubs in the warmest and safest tree-dens.

We practically deveop different methods of restoration and protection of a moonbear winter tree shelters in the Lazo district of Primorye (see the example of our work here). Though law of our country protects tree-shelters of animals, it is not implemented in practical life. Therefore, we decided to take up roles of bear home-restorators and defenders in our region of corruption and commercial fanaticism. Along with making the hand work, we also educate others to respect all forms of life, including animals and trees. The majority of local adults, addicted to cruelty, take our philosophy with some animosity. Therefore, our main focuse are the local children. Being natural Man's quality, love is so naturally expressed by kids (see here). Not the children, but adults are spoiling our forests and rivers and kill their inhabitants today. Any child, who is grown up by such adults, will slowly, but surely, lose his/her best human qualities, such as love, understanding and compassion. If we want to have safe, happy future, we must protect tender minds of our cildren from commercial, cruel ways of thinking. We must raise at least one generation of kind, responsible persons, who will foster values of our country.

You also can take part in this work. Mail us if you want make direct contribution (new_jalsomino { at} yahoo.com). In fact, you can do a lot even from your location. It is not always possible to work in one narrow direction (such as protecting bear trees destruction), especially if you live far away. But no need for narrowness. You can do a lot, and even much more, by working on a broader scale. For example, you can educate masses of "simple" people, and - through them - even influence politicans and high-rank administrators, and finally bring a lot of good changes. How? By propagating idea of LOVE for ALL. As our teacher - Sathya Sai Baba - says: LOVE ALL, SERVE ALL! HELP EVER, HURT NEVER! Of course, the best (if not the only) method to teach others is our own example. You can do anything for Nature (environment) in your place! Plant indigenuos (native) trees, reduce rabbish, feed hungry wild animals etc. We strongly recommend this article to those who seek to reduce rough ways of using Nature and to establish indeed Paradise-like conditions in a world.

We try to make lifes of our four-legged friends happier.
