Having previously raised endangered tigers and big cats in his family home, Giles travels to Laos in Asia, where sun and moon bears are under threat due to illegal bear bile farming. A pioneering wildlife rescue centre is being built, and Giles and his family move in next door to help. Alongside caring for a sun bear and two moon bear cubs at home, Giles rescues bears from all over the country, builds wild enclosures so liberated bears can live a natural life, and releases other rescued animals back to the wild.
