Help Five Sisters Zoo provide a home for Yampil the bear!

Since 2012 Five Sisters Zoo has been proud to work with rescued brown bears. Now we are preparing to welcome Scotland’s only Asiatic Black bear. Named after the village he was rescued from in Ukraine, Yampil has been through a lot. Heavy shelling destroyed much of his previous home and when he was rescued, he is believed to have been one of the only animals left alive.

Temporarily living at the amazing Natturhelpcentrum in Belgium, Yampil is set to make the move across to Scotland in 2024. To make this possible we need your help! By donating today you will assist the team at Five Sisters Zoo create the perfect home for an incredible bear.
