Jill Robinson, the extraordinary and totally inspirational founder and CEO of Animals Asia has been nominated for the Spirit of Hong Kong Award. I have shared this everywhere else and just thought I’d ask our followers here to please vote for Jill if you agree she deserves to win this, as I’m sure you will. This wouldn’t just give Jill the recognition she so thoroughly deserves but would also make more people aware of Animals Asia and animal welfare issues in Asia.
This is where you can vote – just scroll down to Jill’s picture and click on it
The deadline is 4 November, so please vote today. If you would like to ask others to vote who may not know about Animals Asia or bear bile farming, this would be a good video to send along with the link
Ever since I first learnt about Animals Asia I have been very passionate about doing whatever I can to help raise funds and end the cruelty; even more so since I’ve seen the saved bears myself, both in China and Vietnam. So, thank you so much for voting for Jill and for the bears and all animals in Asia too!
Today was the highlight of our trip – our visit to the Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre; the reason why we trekked through the jungle for 5 days and what kept us going when the going got tough.
It was absolutely magical to meet some of the bears and wonderful to meet Vietnam Director Tuan Bendixsen and Bear and Vet Team Director Annemarie Weegenaar, and of course to see Jill again. Time spent at the sanctuary can never be long enough but we had a good few hours. We arrived at 8am and stayed until 3.15pm so were able to see many of the bears. We saw them rushing out of their dens for breakfast and then again for their afternoon playtime and foraging. It’s impossible to describe the emotions when you see them so happy and excited…..
Some of us had bears we sponsor or have befriended who we obviously wanted to meet so we were all busy taking photographs. There will be a lot more on Facebook eventually but I thought I’d share a couple here.
Here are Chocolate and Suki
And here Jill with lovely Suzie Marsh and Roger and Jay van Bear in the herb garden by Suzie’s sculpture of Taurus – a present from Suzie to the sanctuary earlier this year.
