years ago this April, Jill Robinson first walked onto a bear bile farm. On that day in April 1993, Jill could have walked away, but she chose to act and do what she could. Today, you also have a choice. If everyone reading this donated just US$20, it would pay for the care of over 150 bears at our China sanctuary for a full year. Please help us celebrate 20 years of progress. Donate US$20 today (or whatever you can afford).
Christa is a Philologist who studied and graduated in Munich and has worked for international companies in communications. She first heard about Jill and the rescue of the farmed Moon Bears when watching the 37 Degree Special: "The Bear Miracle" in 2001. A series of happy circumstances and coincidences then resulted in Christa beginning work as Media and PR Manager for Animals Asia, Germany in October 2003.
Her love of animals was inspired by the stuffed pet on four wheels that she had as a small child and since then life without animals has been quite unthinkable! On a warm summer afternoon ten years ago, Obi, a large black and white tom cat, decided to move into her home in Munich and has controlled her, the fridge and the can opener ever since!
