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).
Whatever next … first sky diving bear now paragliding bear!
Aberdeen student, Nicky Cairney took to the skies in August dressed in a bear’s outfit to raise money the moon bear rescue and says it was an experience she will never forget.
Nicky determined to overcome her fear of flying by spending a day paragliding on Arran. She took the leap of faith and said after:
“Paragliding was most definitely on my list of things to do before I die and with the passing of close relatives last year, I took time to think about my own life achievements and decided it was time to experience life to the full while I still can.
“It was a little scary to think of being so high up and running straight into thin air, but once the wind caught our paraglider, we ran towards the horizon and within seconds we were in the sky flying round hills and valleys.
“I have to say it was the most amazing experience. I will never forget and am very glad I challenged myself in this way.”
Nicky found out about Animals Asia on Facebook, and said: “I had never heard about the cruelty going on with the moon bears in China. As I found that many others had no idea, I wanted to help raise awareness.”
