Sure you do; we at SAV have just linked up with Lynn to start what will hopefully be some positive actions for bears in the Balkans.

Check out this BBC tv article on ARKA bears:

Being a ‘bear person’, Lynn informs that she knows about the great work being done at ARKA, through contacts in the Netherlands who helped to provide veterinary care for their bear ‘Elvis’. 

Lynn also informs us that she hopes to be able to do a feature on the work being done for bears within Serbia on her own site, and hopefully via other contacts, bigger publicity for ARKA and their great bear work can be provided in the near future.

The following link provides information on the great work being undertaken by Branka and Pavel re dancing bears in Serbia:
