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).
Join Jill Robinson MBE, Founder and CEO of Animals Asia Foundation, as she takes you behind the scenes on a heart-warming tour of the organisation’s Moon Bear Rescue Centre in Sichuan Province, China. The sanctuary, built to rescue and protect 500 endangered moon bears, has so far taken in over 277 bears rescued from cruel bear bile farms throughout China and is currently home to nearly 170 bears.
Meet the charming residents of the sanctuary – bears like handsome Benji and lovely Jasper, who have somehow managed to put the horrors of the past behind them. You’ll see the bears revelling in their new-found freedom, playing, swimming and basking in the sun, despite their years of physical and mental anguish. Their story will inspire you like no other.
