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).
Please join us on our annual yoga day and help make a difference to the lives of endangered moon bears. Thousands remain trapped on bile farms around Asia – many in cages so small that the simple act of stretching is an impossible luxury.
This June, we will once again be holding a full day of yoga with sessions led by experienced yoga masters in the spacious and airy Ocean View Court at Cyberport.
For a minimum donation of HK$200, you can choose whether to stretch your limbs all day, or simply join us for one or two sessions. Whatever your choice, your participation will make a difference!
Dedicate your day of practice to showing your support for the bears.
All proceeds will go to Animals Asia’s campaign to end bear bile farming in Asia – so please join us and encourage your family, friends and work colleagues to come along too. If your friends and family don’t have time to take part, they can still support you and the bears – by making a donation, or by sponsoring you for each hour or half hour that you take part.
The participant who raises the most funds through their own donation and/or sponsorship will receive a great yoga starter pack.

And it's not just yoga — so don't worry if you are not a fan — it's still a great day out for friends and family.
Enjoy free traditional Indian and Bollywood dance performances, while we take a break from yoga sessions around lunchtime.
Browse a variety of stalls selling handicrafts, organic products, animal communication, and of course Animals Asia's own merchandise.
All the vendors are kindly donating a percentage of sales to Animals Asia.
Alliance of Animal Communicators Caring about Animals (AACCA)
One of the many highlights of the day includes animal communication volunteers from AACCA offering consultations — simply bring along a printed photo of your dogs, cats or other companion animals if you would like to communicate with them. AACCA is generously donating 100% of their consultation fees to Animals Asia.
