Save the saddest bears


© FOUR PAWS | Hazir Reka

The situation in Albania is critical. Currently around 50 bears are kept in captivity across the country,  suffering in terrible, inappropriate conditions! Kept in tiny cages near restaurants or shackled in chains and paraded as tourist attractions on beaches and in towns, these bears spend their entire lives in misery, simply for the entertainment and profit of humans.


That’s why FOUR PAWS has launched a campaign aiming to end this horrendous situation once and for all. We are looking to tackle the cruel keeping of bears in Albania, so that these 50 bears in future can get the lives they deserve, free of exploitation and abuse. Join us and sign our petition!

FOUR PAWS strongly believes that these bears were illegally captured from the wild, as poaching and the trade in cubs throughout Albania is flourishing.  


This month FOUR PAWS  is launching its campaign to raise attention for “Europe’s saddest bears” and stand up  for systemic change in Albania to improve the lives of the bears . With your support we’re appealing for  stricter law enforcement and a legal ban on all forms of cruel bear keeping – please add your name to  our petition here!
