Rescue the ‘Saddest Polar Bear in the World”


Target: Guangzhou Ocean and Fishery Bureau in Guangzhou, China
Goal: Rescue the “saddest polar bear in the world” from the Grandview Aquarium located in a shopping mall.

The saddest polar bear in the world remains imprisoned and on display in a tiny aquarium at a Chinese shopping mall. This poor bear, who is being held captive along with five walrus calves, six young beluga whales and two Arctic wolves, is trapped in a “horrifying” enclosure. The bear is forced to pose for selfies with tourists, who bang on the windows and shout at the bear. While shoppers come and go, the bear, and the rest of his fellow prisoners, remain trapped in this “house of horrors.” This poor polar bear may not live much longer in these conditions so we are urgently calling for this shopping mall zoo to send him to a proper sanctuary before it’s too late.

“This bear has no peace and nothing natural to take comfort in. This is a bear that suffers for what? For selfies? For shopping?” said Animals Asia Animal Welfare Director Dave Neale.

Rumors have also been spreading that this zoo has caused the death of numerous animals in recent months and that there is insufficient vet care provided for the animals.

Countless photos and videos show this poor polar bear laying listlessly on the ground while shoppers and tourists bang on the glass seeking a selfie with the bear. This noble and majestic creature deserves better, much better. Demand that the Grandview Aquarium release this captive and abused animal to a proper sanctuary immediately.


Dear Guangzhou Ocean and Fishery Bureau,

The saddest polar bear in the world is imprisoned and abused at the Grandview Aquarium in your city. This poor bear, along with other arctic animals, is trapped in a tiny enclosure that doesn’t come close to meeting the needs of a large cold weather animal. The bear is forced to pose for selfies with tourists, who bang on the windows and shout at the bear. This poor polar bear, as well as his fellow prisoners, may not live much longer in these “horrifying” conditions.

Please open an investigation into this shopping mall zoo, and send the animals to a proper sanctuary before it’s too late.

    That picture just breaks my heart.
    What the F- is wrong with these people?
    Don’t they have heart and souls?
    Retorical – I already know the answer.

    I wish I was so wealthy that I could buy this poor animal and send him to some type of sanctuary, to enjoy life. So sad.
    I’d do it in a heartbeat.
