Bears About the House 2 September 2022: Episode 2 on BBC Two 11

Conservationist Giles Clark continues his mission to tackle the illegal wildlife trade and to help build a pioneering new bear sanctuary in Laos. The team are on the road for 14 hours after rescuing two terrified moon bear cubs that were taken from the wild a week ago. The cubs, called David and Jane, are five months old and were seized by the authorities after they were discovered for sale illegally online. Giles takes the cubs home, as they need around-the-clock specialist care.

At the sanctuary, Mary the sun bear is now nine months old. Now growing in confidence, she is becoming extremely determined. Mary learns to forage for food, use her climbing skills in trees and even picks up a skill unique to a sun bear – jumping! The sanctuary doesn’t have contact with bears as they get older, and as Mary graduates from the nursery and moves into her permanent home, she meets another sun bear, a four-year-old female called Noy.

David and Jane develop well and move to the sanctuary. But Giles returns from being away as the sanctuary has received shocking news: there has been a break-in, and Giles has to come to terms with a theft.

Security is stepped up, and the sanctuary picks up the pace with construction once more. Finally the quarantine building is finished, meaning that the sanctuary is now ready to receive bears from bear bile farms in Laos. The Laos government has committed to closing these farms when they have somewhere to put the rescued bears.

At the end of an eventful year, Giles is more determined than ever to help bears and get them out of the illegal wildlife trade. The team will keep fighting.
