The thing about volunteering is that no one likes to be left behind. As said in an earlier message, we actually had to draw straws between vets Heather and Lara, nurses Hayley, Wendy and Annemarie and bear managers Nic, Kia and Donata - as everyone wanted to be part of helping in some way, any way, with the tragedy to have affected Sichuan.


Silence for the sorrow

I’m just about to catch a flight from Hong Kong to Chengdu, but first I wanted to give you a quick update on the situation at the sanctuary and apologise for having to miss the first three events of my US Roadshow, which starts tomorrow.


Fears of another quake

2008年05月12日, 23:58下午 |

It's 1pm China time and we've just heard from a friend in Chendgdu that local Chinese news reports say another another earthquake is expected this afternoon. No more details yet.


Aftershocks still occurring

Thanks so much for all your messages of concern and support. The death toll is now over 10,000 and still climbing and the city is still in the grip of aftershocks.


Death toll rises

2008年05月12日, 08:27上午 |

The news is getting worse I'm afraid. At 9.30pm China time, the official death toll from the quake was up to 5,000 and we fear it will rise further throughout the night.
