A Flying Bear - Nicky Cairney flew a tandem paragliding flight above Catacol dressed as a bear to raise awareness and money for the Animal Asia Foundation and the plight of the Moon Bears.
Moon bears are kept in crush cages and milked for their bile which is used in Chinese Medicine. Nicky appeared on STV Television.
