Survival of the Sun Bears

SURVIVAL OF THE SUN BEARS is a documentary film in progress crafted as a CALL TO ACTION that informs the public and our youth about sun bears and their struggle to survive in the diminishing forests of Borneo.

Bear Trust is a partner on this wildly amazing film, created by filmmaker Jocelyn Stokes of Wild & Stoked Productions. Jocelyn has been filming sun bears for over a year.  Now, we’re ready for the post-production phase of this film project.

After the final documentary film is complete, Jocelyn will take the film on the festival circuit and then bring it back home to Bear Trust who will use the film as part of our science-based conservation education program, both online and in the classroom.  In addition, Bear Trust is creating a science-based conservation education lesson plan that corresponds with this wonderful film.  As with all of Bear Trust’s conservation education programs, we’ll provide the final film and corresponding lesson plan for free to youth, teachers and YOU!

Internationally, this documentary and lesson plan will be translated into Bahasa Malaysia, Chinese, and Indonesian and used in schools and education centers in areas where sun bears live.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!  Jocelyn Stokes has already captured hundreds of hours of amazing footage of sun bears.  We are now in the post-production phase.  Please help us raise the final funding we need to complete this film by donating.
