On April 24th 2015, our archipelago welcomed a new resident rather special… an Asian black bear (female white-chested bear), 2 months-old that weights 3.5Kg.
Classified as vulnerable by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature), the bear had to be sold on the black market in Laos. That day, her fate rested upon us…
Following a moment of reflection and questioning, and despite the heavy responsibility of our decision, we faced the most unexpected challenge at Nirvana Archipel Resort. We used to get monkeys and other exotic animals, but that day, the Nirvana Archipel Resort life has completely flipped.
Lovely, funny, full of tenderness and in memory of the famous French cartoon movie, we have decided to call her Bouba. Real playmate, Bouba has easily found her own place and she has been quickly accepted by all the other animals in the reserve.
