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 engage with government authorities, public representatives and policy-makers in China to encourage them to protect animals in China’s zoos and safari parks from neglect and abuse.
We advise government authorities such as the China Association of Zoological Gardens and the China Wildlife Conservation Association on animal welfare regulations, and work with them to provide training in animal welfare concepts for animal management staff.
Through this partnership, we deliver animal welfare presentations and workshops to animal managers and vets at Chinese facilities. The positive dialogue with these authorities has resulted in a number of opportunities to propose new initiatives and encourage sharing of best practice from zoos around the world.
