Help put an end to Baloo’s torment 

For 23 years, Baloo has been cruelly locked in a cage and kept as the mascot of a Romanian ski resort. With your help, there’s a real hope that we can rescue Baloo and move him to Libearty Bear Sanctuary where he can live the rest of his days in peace.  

Help us free Baloo from this misery.
