Leo and Melanka, the ''President Bears''
The "President bears", Leo and Melanka, have been living in confinement since the age of three months old. They are kept in two separate enclosures in one of the residences of the President of Ukraine. Their time in captivity revolves around concrete floors, inadequate food, no shelter from harsh weathers and unfortunately, stereotypical behaviour as a result of their deprived freedom.
We are committed to move Leo and Melanka to BEAR SANCTUARY Domazhyr, where they will be able to enjoy their freedom in a big enclosure of 1,2 hectares.
At our sanctuary, Leo and Melanka will receive the care and support they so desperately deserve.
To achieve this, we need your support. Together we can make a difference and give Leo and Melanka a new, prosperous life.
