Jessica Prestage 1“The work at the sun bear centre was more varied than I had expected, and we worked more closely with the bears than I had hoped. The tree maintenance was hard work but it was very rewarding.Being a part of the process of rehabilitation, especially in regards of three young bears at the centre was amazing. I created a dry cage for them, watched them take their first steps into the jungle and later on saw them climbing trees, foraging and playing out in their rain-forest enclosure. It is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the process of rehabilitation and the biodiversity in the rainforest.”

I would definitely say I miss it already.”
