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).
We provide educational workshops for animal management staff at China’s zoos and safari parks on meeting the health and welfare needs of captive animals. We promote and campaign for changes in the way captive animals are cared for in public facilities throughout the country.
We demonstrate how enrichment programmes can be used to stimulate captive animals, encourage natural behaviour patterns and prevent stereotypic behaviour. We also run practical workshops on how to create simple enrichment toys and outdoor furnishings, and how to rotate enrichment programmes to increase animal welfare.
