A story that is so inspiring, so actionable and so kind - Animals Asia is an organisation that is devoted to ending bear bile farming and improving the welfare of animals across Asia.
Today, I speak to the founder and CEO of Animals Asia, Jill Robinson, who has been a pioneer of animal welfare in Asia since 1985 and she founded the organisation in 1998 five years after an encounter with a cage bear on a farm in southern China changed her life forever. And she talks about this today.
Jill and I delve deep into the cruel and unfathomable world of bear bile farming. We cover the inception of Animals Asia, memorable bear saves, government news and why it's crucial this captive practice comes to an end and how we can all help.
Animals Asia is also working hard to build a third bear sanctuary by the end of this year so if you're able to help, you can donate or shop on their website.
Also join Animals Asia on their social pages for news and updates.
