First Quang Ninh rescue LIVE timeline
Live updates from the island rescue of two moon bears from Bai Tu Long off the coast of northern Vietnam - the first of the Quanh Ninh rescues.
Animals Asia has announced that it will rescue two moon bears on Tuesday 5 May from a remote island on the outskirts of Bai Tu Long Bay, just north of the country’s most iconic tourist destination, Halong Bay.
Animals Asia was delighted to welcome wildlife photographer Peter Yuen to our Vietnam sanctuary and give him unprecedented access to the 112 rescued bears living peaceful lives on site.
