Project Description

For 20 years Ina had only half of a swimming pool, half of a shelter and half of a walking space. At the zoo in Piatra Neamt she lived only half of a life – literally and figuratively. She shared the same pen with her sister, Anca. However, the pen was provided with just one pool of water, one den and one "walking" area… for 2 bears. The only solution found by the zoo administrator has been taken from chess – a weekly castling between the two sisters.  After years of complaints, the Association Millions of Friends persuaded the authorities to do justice. With the support of the National Environmental Guard, the local government agreed to give up on Ina. In October 2014, AMP managed to bring her to the sanctuary in Zarnesti. Now she has trees, a pool and den, all just for her.
