Great Day! Great Fun! Great Cause! coming up on Sunday April 13

Our Camberwell Market stall is coming fast. It’s happening in Melbourne on Sunday April 13 7am – 12 pm. Come and support us on the day and bring some friends along! It’s a great opportunity to share AAF’s work about ending bear-bile farming with them. Plus lots to fossick through so bring your wallet and help add to the $2000 we will raise for Jigsaw’s Bear Care Club…


Read Part 1 of Jigsaw’s Beyond the Bamboo interview with the Director of AAF’s Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre here . It shares when and why Tuan Bendixsen decided to work for Animals Asia and why bears make him laugh!

STOP PRESS: Two cubs have been rescued from a man caught trafficking them from Laos into Vietnam, no doubt for the bear-bile farm industry. Read more about the lucky escape for Dang and James the bear.

And finally, a lovely story about Animals Asia’s bears at their Chengdu sanctuary: The bears are rediscovering their natural instinct to create hibernation “nests”. Share in the delight of the bear staff who photographed this amazing array of nests.
