Dear friend,

Good news! Together with Education for Nature Vietnam (ENV), Animals Asia Foundation, and local authorities, we supported the rescue of three captive Asiatic bears from the horrific abuse of bear bile farming in Lang Son province, North Vietnam.

With this rescue, Lang Son has become the 40th province in Vietnam to be ‘bear bile farm-free’.

Watch video footage of the rescue here:



"We could be the generation to end the cruel and unnecessary bear bile industry."

Update regarding Bill S-203 and protections for whales and dolphins:

Reports of dangerously poor water quality, marine mammal deaths and international exports – what is happening?

A recent story from the CBC exposed, yet again, the poor water quality MarineLand provides its captive cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises). Ontario’s animal welfare enforcement team has ordered MarineLand to fix what is essentially the “life support system”, for these captive, sentient animals. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Fisheries and Oceans approved MarineLand’s export permit and some belugas were transferred to the US. The process was not transparent and could have done more to extend protections for the animals. You can help tell decision-makers to do better.
