  • July 2018, a young Formosan black bear was found separated from its mother near Nanan Falls in Hualien.

  • Taiwan's Forestry Bureau and Taiwan Black Bear Conservation Association decided to rescue it from the forest.

  • Professor Mei-Hsiu Huang and TBBCA soon formed a team with handlers and vets for the necessary care and training.

  • Taipei Zoo also provided facilities to conduct 4 health checks on the cub.

  • After a few meetings with experts, it came to the consensus that the bear cub needed a natural wild environment to learn skills to survive in the wild and avoid any possible hazards including humans while preparing to return to its natural habitat.

  • With the Bunun tribal elder's prayer and the assistance from a National Airborne corps helicopter, the bear cub went back home.

  • This is the perfect result of public and private sectors joining in a common effort.

  • Two months later, her GPS collar was found.
