Mokiup is one of Free the Bears' greatest success stories, rescued from a tiny cage in 2004 in atrocious conditions with a chain around his neck. He was in such a poor condition he was affectionately named Mokiup, which roughly translates as "ugly-face" in Cambodia's native language, Khmer.
Over a decade later and no one would call him that again! Mokiup is now a beautiful and trusting bear, always putting on a show for visitors happy in the knowledge he is cared for and always safe from harm, thanks to our supporters.
Sponsor Mokiup for one year, or buy a 6-month gift sponsorship for a bear-hugger you care about.
