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).
Hong Kong adventurer features Animals Asia on National Geographic Channels

This innovative adventure travel show will broadcast weekly on the Nat Geo Adventure channel (and the National Geographic Channel in Hong Kong) at 8.pm on Sunday nights across 21 countries throughout Asia, the Middle-East, Australia and New Zealand. Click here for the full series breakdown.
