The BEAR SANCTUARY in Kosovo
BEAR SANCTUARY Prishtina is located near the village of Mramor. about 20 KM from Prishtina. It covers around 10 hectares of developed are and provide a kind of natural habitat and lifelong home to many local brown bears formerly kept as restaurant bears in Kosovo and Albania, aiming at attracting more guests or even other ones kept illegally as pets by Kosovar families. Here, the bears have the chance to live under professional supervision and in an environment suited to their species. Now we have 20 bears in our sanctuary.
Thanks to the work of FOUR PAWS and BEAR SANCTUARY Prishtina, no bears have been kept in captivity by private owners since 2014.
