One Week Old Orphaned Bear Cubs, Jammy and Donut, Will Melt Your Heart

Alexandra Evans, One Green Planet, August 28, 2014

Are you ready to see some precious bear cubs? Check out these photos of Jammy and Donut, two orphaned sibling bears who are only one week old. They are the newest arrivals at the Free the Bears‘ Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre in Cambodia. Since this species is critically endangered, it’s so important that Free the Bears is caring for them!

Jammy and Donut will receive the best care until they are old enough to be released back into the wild. Aren’t they adorable? These sun bears are actually one of the world’s smallest and least-studied species, but unfortunately they’re often killed to make bear paw soup for restaurants.

Free the Bears is making use of cub care kits to help them care for Donut and Jammy. Many kind hearted people have donated to help rehabilitate and care for these rescue bears, as well as several other cubs at the organization.

Here is Mr. Heng, who has been a surrogate bear-parent to many of the Free the Bears’ cubs, keeping careful watch over these babies.

Both Sun bear cubs are female. Villagers found them in the Ratanakiri province after their mother was chased away into the forest by an intense dog. They’re so young that they have yet to open their eyes!

The staff has been keeping the cubs in an incubator set at a constant temperature. They’re so cute!

 To help rescued sun bears at Free the Bears, you can purchase a cub care kit online. Visit Free the Bears web shop for more information.

Rescue name: Jammy
Rescue name:Donut

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
