#SendItForSlothBear Temporary Store Closure

A Message to All

This is a direct statement from creator and owner of #SendItForSlothBear Beck Trebesch. The website store will not be open to users due to the fact that I am living in Norway for this year, making it difficult and expensive to ship products and process orders. Our Spreadshirt Store is still available for purchasing products but not the local store. The store will reopen as soon I return to the states in June of 2017. For other #SendItForSlothBear activities like the series, we should continue with producing content and a new episode is coming soon.

Apologies and keep sending for sloth bear, 

Beck Trebesch

Bear Trust International

Bear Trust International, an international organization that supports all bear species, is starting a fundraising campaign to support research in the sloth bear and it's habitat. Dr. Nishith Dharaiya; Co-Chair IUCN Sloth Bear Expert Team and Dr. Melissa Reynolds-Hogland; Bear Trust International are going to Gujarat region of India to study and understand the cause of habitat loss and decline in population. The research will also benefit a general understanding of the how many sloth bears are left in the wild.

Sloth Bears and Habitat

Sloth bears... Where do they live? How do they survive? The sloth bear, also known as the Stickney Bear, live in the country of India where they are a vulnerable species. Their habitat is vulnerable to logging. In a study by Trishna Dutta of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, sloth bear populations are separated and they rely on corridors of land between populations to keep the gene flow stable. If these corridors are disrupted, the already declining population of sloth bears could be severely threatened.
