The mysterious “pit” Ms Rodriguez claimed housed sun bears Tegan and Bedhu whom she promised to build a new enclosure for! We finally tracked these 2 sun bears at Kandi Zoo, Jogja in Central Java.
$65 000 USD raised but nothing given to a single animal beneficiary in Ms Rodriguez’s campaign! How is this possible?!
Ms Rodriguez promised to help these 2 sun bears with a new enclosure. Well, where is the new enclosure or the money donated to build it? MISSING that’s where!
Much of the donations given via Rebecca’s http://www.gofundme.com/sunbearsindonesia campaign were donated SPECIFICALLY FOR THESE 2 SUN BEARS! So where is YOUR money???
Ms Rodriguez claims that GoFundMe have investigated her campaign but found no fault? If NONE of the BENEFICIARIES named in the campaign received even $1 HOW is there NO FAULT? If the campaign was MISLEADING, and it was, HOW is there NO FAULT??
And even after Ms Rodriguez could not stop crying at the plight of Tegan and Bedhu NOTHING HAS BEEN GIVEN for these little sun bears! Around $65 000 raised in donations but ZERO, ZIP, NADA in the form of ANY help for these and the other beneficiaries of the http://www.gofundme.com/sunbearsindonesia campaign!
We cannot understand why, if Ms Rodriguez was “moved to tears” and has $65000 in her coffers, did she turn her back on Tegan and Bedhu? If you had $65000 in public donations, wouldn’t YOU do what you said YOU would do? As an animal advocate. As an animal lover? And give these 2 Sun Bears the life they deserve? Why did she turn her back on them and keep all the donations?
Ms Rodriguez doesn’t even have the new sun bear enclosure listed under her CURRENT PROJECTS of http://www.oneanimalworld.com !
How much was donated for Tegan and Bedhu by the public? Hundreds of Dollars? Thousands? But how much did they actually get in the end?
Luckily, there is a legitimate fundraiser for sun bears Tegan and Bedhu! This fundraiser has nothing to do with Rebecca Rodriguez. This fundraiser is hosted by Richard Bailey of UK! This is wonderful news! To read more about the project for the new enclosure for these adorable and deserving sun bears, see :
