About this book

In 1993, Perth grandmother Mary Hutton started a petition at her local shopping mall after seeing a news story about the extraction of bile from a caged and traumatised Asiatic Black Bear. Upon learning that thousands of bears were being held in these horrifying conditions throughout Asia, Mary was compelled to act, and by 1995, Free the Bears was officially formed. Since then hundreds of adorable sun, moon and sloth bears have been rescued from an existence of pain and suffering by Free the Bears. They are now safe in sanctuaries in South-East Asia and India, thanks to Mary's tireless work at spreading the message of the plight of these defenceless creatures. Free the Bears is the incredible story of how the decision to make a difference can have an extraordinary impact around the world.
