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).
Best known for presenting BBC2’s’ Flog It!’ Paul Martin has joined Virginia McKenna CBE as our new UK patron. Paul has been involved in our work for some time and became our fabulous auctioneer at our 2006 London Roadshow event.
Without doubt, one of his greatest loves and his constant companion when on the road filming is ‘Bluebelle’ – a five-year old German Shepherd who appears regularly on the show and gets herself into all sorts of mischief.
Paul says, “I have been so struck by the cruelty of what is happening and the brilliant work Animals Asia is doing to help these poor animals that I hope I can be of real help to them in anyway I can. After watching footage of the bears I was in tears”.
