Animals Asia

Founded in 1998, Animals Asia promotes compassion and respect for all animals and works to bring about long-term change. We work to end the barbaric bear bile trade, which sees over 10,000 bears kept on bile farms in China, and, according to official figures, about 1,200 suffering the same fate in Vietnam.

Animals Asia has rescued over 600 bears, caring for them at its award-winning bear sanctuaries in China and Vietnam.

Animals Asia also works to end the trade in dogs and cats for food in China and Vietnam, and lobbies to improve the welfare of companion animals, promote humane population management and prevent the cross border export of “meat dogs” in Asia.

In addition, Animals Asia campaigns for an end to abusive animal practices in zoos and safari parks in Asia, and works closely with governing authorities to improve animal management and increase awareness of the welfare needs of captive animals.

Important event information

"Due to unforeseen technical and practical difficulties, a decision has been made to postpone the proposed concert on December 10th with Rick Wakeman and Maria Rud at the Queens House in aid of the Moon Bears charity.

Whilst all the issues that have arisen can be overcome given time, it would not be possible in the remaining timescale and so the decision was made to actively look for a new date in 2018 in order to ensure that this very special and unique event achieves everything it should. Potential dates in 2018 are already being considered and as soon as a firm date is set, then further announcements will be made."
