Description

Visit the largest brown bear sanctuary in the world and learn more about the incredible creatures on this guided tour of the Libearty Bear Sanctuary in Zarnesti. See the bears up close as your guide introduces you to the over 80 residents of the place and each of their unique stories.

Begin your tour by listening your guide spin the heart-wrenching tale of Maya, the bear whose life inspired the founding of the sanctuary. The Libearty Bear Sanctuary is dedicated to Maya's memory and works to rescue and rehabilitate mistreated bears from all over the country. As you explore the sanctuary, which covers 173 acres (70 hectares) of land to give the bears ample space, your guide explains that each of the animals living there have been rescued from cruel conditions.

Spot the bears as they roam in their spacious enclosures, climbing trees and taking dips in pools. As you observe, learn from your guide that though the bears come from bleak backgrounds, thanks to the efforts of the sanctuary, they are now able to enjoy normal, happy lives. End your tour on a hopeful note by getting educated about the dangers of keeping bears in captivity and what people can do to prevent it.
