Taiji dolphin slaughter 2011: The carnage continues and on 18th January we received a message regarding Leah Lemieux and a team of Japanese activists who filmed the slaughter of over 40 beautiful striped dolphins in Taiji that day.

Our gorgeous blind bear Mityan is sponsored by Bev Hellyer and our support group in Queensland, Australia, where they are now suffering themselves in the floods hitting their region.

I sometimes wonder if we spoil these bears a little too much. A description by China bear manager James in last week's report made me stop ..... and laugh out loud. John, our resident macaque, is clearly enjoying his dining experience in this pic snapped by fellow bear manager Charlie.

This week, HSI (Humane Society International) put out a press release after rallying the support of over 40 groups in China, which we have also joined in deploring the import of seal meat into China. This release follows a trip to Beijing by Canadian Fisheries Minister Gail Shea, who signed a cooperative arrangement with Chinese officials that she said would give Canada’s sealing industry access to the world’s largest consumer market.
