Cambodia: Sun bears under the gun
PHNOM PENH (Khmer Times) – Facing snares, hunters and deforestation, sun bears are in danger of being classified as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) – and deforestation is their main threat.
“Given the sun bear’s dependence on forest, it is clear that the large-scale deforestation...has dramatically reduced a suitable habitat for this species,” the IUCN warns.
But hunting also poses an immediate threat to the species. By the time the chainsaws arrive at the forest, most of the sun bears are often already gone ...
When some wealthy Cambodians want to give a prestigious gift or bribe, they give a bear cub instead of a Rolex, conservationists said.
Sun bear cubs are sold as exotic pets across Asia, but conservationists say Cambodia may be the only place where sun bear cubs are also given as bribes.
