Calling all bear lovers! It’s #MoonBearDay

Posted on


Calling all bear lovers!  It’s #MoonBearDay on 8th August and a great chance to be kind and to help moon bears!

The theme of #MoonBearDay 2020 is The Only Cure is Kindness.

Animals Asia is devoted to ending bear bile farming and improving the welfare of animals across Asia. It promotes compassion and respect for all animals and works tirelessly to bring about long-term change.  It operates bear rescue sanctuaries in China and Vietnam.  

The charity’s founder and CEO, Jill Robinson MBE, Dr.med.vet. h.c., Hon LLD is the world’s leading authority on the bear bile industry and has been campaigning against it since 1993.

Bringing an END to cruel bear bile farming 

Animals Asia has an exclusive agreement with the Vietnamese government to end bear bile farming in Vietnam forever and bring the remaining 438 captive bears to sanctuary. 


To make a real, lasting positive change to these bears, we all need to get on board and help them in whatever way we all can. 

Ways to make a difference to moon bears:

  1. Add an Animals Asia filter to your Facebook profile photo – show your friends and family that you support moon bears and care about them.

  2. Download your #MoonBearDay poster and put a  #BearInTheWindow for Moon Bear Day.  Share the poster on social media, and don’t forget to tag @AnimalsAsia.

  3. Buy your #TheOnlyCureIsKindness T-shirt, share a picture of yourself wearing it and tell everyone why you support Animals Asia. Remember to tag @AnimalsAsia and use the hashtag #TheOnlyCureIsKindness
  4. Help raise funds for the bears!

    There are posters you can download for #MoonBearDay

Ways to help raise funds to rescue & care for the bears

  1. Add a DONATE button to your Facebook posts - ask your followers to donate to Animals Asia. You could also Createafundraiser for the bears.

  2. Donate to Animals Asia’s campaign to end bear bile farming in Vietnam for good, Why not send the bears a little gift such as a jar of strawberry jam, or fruity ice pops?  Maybe you think they’d prefer a fruit and veg hamper, a pool party or a bear swing!  There are plenty of gifts you can send via Animals Asia’s online shop, and they start at £5 (that’s the jar of strawberry jam).

  3. You could also sponsor a bear for £23.00 a month –and help give a bear a forever home because some of the rescued bears will never be able to go back to the wild.  

  4. You could also join Oliver’s Army – Oliver was rescued after three decades in a cage and he survived 30 years on a bear bile farm in a full metal jacket.   Give a monthly donation to help care for the bears long term.

Take a look at Animals Asia Getting Involved page and choose something to do!

Just imagine what a difference your help could make

From a life of living in a cage, your help will enable the bears to run, climb and play in their new home and even take a dip in a pool!   We can all help ensure that the bears have the best care with all their veterinary needs attended to and everything they need to help them get over their previous traumatic life.  And of course, all this will come with lots of tender loving care and kindness.
