Bears in Croatia

FOUR PAWS is working to improve the welfare of bears in Croatia!


Many bears in Croatia are still kept in inappropriate conditions in zoos or even in private keeping. Our bear experts frequently visit the country to assess the situation there, and act where needed. In September 2014, FOUR PAWS signed a cooperation agreement with the Bear Refuge Kuterevo in Croatia's Velebit hills. FOUR PAWS will help the refuge to build new enclosures to accomodate bears rescued from poor keeping conditions. Two bears from the municipal zoo of Split will move into their new species-appropriate enclosures in spring 2015. 

Still there are bears living in very poor keeping conditions in zoos or even private hands.
