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).
On Tuesday, 9 October 2012, Animals Asia volunteer Kai Madden presented a special one-night-only screening of Animals Asia documentary “Cages of Shame” at Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown, NY.
Directed by Martin Guinness, the film has received the 2011 Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) ACE Documentary Film Grant and features narration by Emmy Award-winning actor Peter Coyote.
The audience was eager to learn more about the organization’s work, and the story of ten bears rescued by Animals Asia from a bile farm in the Shandong province of China, which is the subject of the film. The screening was followed by a Q&A.
After the Q&A special guest Ed Young, Caldecott Award-winning illustrator of the children’s book “Moon Bear” generously stayed to sign copies for audience members. Read about Ed’s recent trip to our rescue centre in China
Volunteer Kai Madden, who organized the event with Animals Asia’s Maya Gottfried.
