Animals Asia


Animals Asia is devoted to ending the barbaric practice of bear bile farming and improving the welfare of animals in China and Vietnam. We promote compassion and respect for all animals and work to bring about long-term change through education programmes and negotiation with the relevant authorities and government. The Animals Asia team has been rescuing bears since 1994 and is the only organisation with a bear sanctuary in China. Our founder and CEO, Jill Robinson MBE,, is widely recognised as the world's leading expert on cruel bear bile industry.

We have three flagship programmes:

END BEAR BILE FARMING - Animals Asia works to end the barbaric bear bile trade which sees over 10,000 bears - mainly moon bears but also sun bears and brown bears - kept on bile farms in China and around 2,400 in Vietnam.

CAT AND DOG WELFARE - Animals Asia works to end the trade in dogs and cats for food in China, and lobbies to improve the welfare of companion animals and promote humane population management

ZOOS AND SAFARI PARKS - Animals Asia campaigns for an end to abusive animal practices in zoos and safari parks in China and works closely with governing authorities to improve animal management and increase awareness of the welfare needs of captive animals.
