Please join Jill Robinson MBE, Founder and CEO of Animals Asia Foundation, in Auckland on 17th July and learn about the amazing progress that has been made in the fight against bear bile farming in China and Vietnam. Jill will be sharing all the latest news first-hand on animal welfare in China, including positive developments in government relations, the explosion of media coverage on sensitive issues, support from the traditional medicine community to "heal without harm" and the growing trend of brave activists fighting for the rights of animals against communist rule.
Also hear up to date news on the two latest bear rescues in China and Vietnam which bring the total number of bears rescued by Animals Asia to 328. Jill will also have tales of our own bear, Assisi, who was rescued by Animals Asia and was able to enjoy his final months with the sun on his back and grass under his feet.
You will have the opportunity to win two places on Animals Asia’s China Challenge Trek departing in September 2010 and to own one of the small number of unique moon bear related items for auction on the evening.
The talk will take place in the Conference Centre in the WA Building at AUT. Please access through the Main Entry.
