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).
Last month visitors to New York City’s Bronx Zoo got a chance to walk through the pages of Moon Bear during the zoo’s annual Animal Tales Extravaganza.
We were thrilled when we learned that this gorgeous new children’s book, sales of which benefit our Moon Bear Rescue Program, would be included in this fantastic yearly celebration by the zoo of the very best in animal-themed children’s literature.
Moon Bear’s illustrator, Ed Young, was on hand at the event to read from the book and demonstrate the techniques he used to create the book’s beautiful artwork. Sadly, Moon Bear’s brilliant author, Brenda Guiberson, wasn’t able to attend, but she was thrilled to read the latest Moon Bear reviews including this one from parenting magazine Kiwi:
“You sometimes can judge a book by its cover. Moon Bear is one of the most beautiful picture books for children that I have ever read.”
Larger than life images form part of the zoo's literary celebration.
Get your copy of Moon Bear here and don’t forget to visit the Moon Bear Bucks page where you can learn about the campaign to save “Mac!”
The Moon Bear book is brought to life with a walk-through exhibit at the Bronx Zoo.
The outdoor exhibition helped create a woodland setting to tell the Moon Bear story.
