Founded in 1998, the Animals Asia team has been rescuing moon bears since 1994 and is the only organization with a bear sanctuary in China. Our founder and CEO, Jill Robinson, is widely recognized as the world's leading expert on the cruel bear bile industry, having campaigned against it since 1993. From its small beginnings in Hong Kong, Animals Asia has grown into a respected international NGO with over 300 staff and offices in Australia, China, Germany, Italy, the UK, US and Vietnam.
