Marine Mammal Organisation started this petition to Budapest Zoological Park

Belij & Serji, Are siblings, currently residing within Budapest Zoological Park & Botanical Gardens in Hungary. They are 4 years old and have been at this facility since they were young cubs, they rely on each other for emotional support. Their sole purpose is to sire cubs in the name of conservation upon attaining the right age for breeding and they're already registered under the EEP Breeding program. However, Budapest Zoological Park. Have confirmed it's not their intentions to keep these two young bears and in 2020. Potentially the bears could be sent to different facilities to be paired with females, and could be exposed to further suboptimal housing. 

Budapest Zoological Park have bred 39 polar bear cubs since the 1930's

We are petitioning and lobbying Budapest Zoological Park to. 

A, Keep Belij & Serji and only temporarily relocate them together to another facility whilst they modernise, extend and update their existing exhibit. 

B, Agree to remove Belij & Serji from the EEP Breeding program and not acquire any additional polar bears. 

C,Upon Belij and Serji passing away to agree to phase out exhibiting polar bears.

Or Rehome Belij and Serji to the facility which we have chosen.

 

Belij & Serji Need Your Support  

Marine Mammal Support Organisation has secured the bears a new home, This facility closely mimics that of their natural environment and the bears can remain together. Please help us make this possible for these two beautiful bears who deserve better. 

Captive Polar bears are not bred to help conserve the gene pool of their wild counterparts who are struggling to survive due to climate change, but merely to maintain a healthy gene pool of their cousins in the captive industry.

Belij & Serji will also be featuring in our #BearsOnTheEdge Campaign that goes live in May. 

Please be a voice for Belij & Serji by signing  and sharing their petition. 

On behalf of all the team at Marine Mammal Support Organisation. 

Thank you.
