Bears in Mind has started a petition, in collaboration with Russian NGO Forgotten Animals, to free brown bear Ekatarina, and have her transported to a suitable bear sanctuary. Bear Ekatarina has been incarcerated in a prison in Kazakhstan for 15 years. This bizarre situation has to end! Ekatarina has to be free and transferred to a sanctuary. When many people sign the petition, even more pressure can be put on the Ministry that is responsible. So please help free Ekatarina and sign the petition!
