Beards for Bears.

Animals Asia is making it really easy to help raise money for moon bears - victims of ruthless and barbaric “bile farming” in some Asian countries. Moon bears are kept in small cages for up to 30 years, and have their bile extracted through catheters, needles and open wounds. Starved, dehydrated and riddled with ailments, this is a living hell for the bears. The bile is used as a form of medicine.

Animals Asia needs funds to run our bear sanctuaries in China and Vietnam and to campaign for an end to bear farming.
