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).
As one of Asia's leading animal welfare organisations, we are constantly being asked to comment on a wide variety of welfare issues, from the use of elephants in circuses to the trade in snakes for their skins.
To try and clarify our position, we have developed a number of general statements on broad issues of welfare, which are accessible on this part of our website. Where appropriate we have provided links from these to other parts of our site for more detailed information on specific issues.
We hope this helps you to develop an understanding of who we are and what we stand for. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.
