Jill Robinson founded Animals Asia in 1998 and since has rescued almost 600 bears from the bile industry where bears are caged and face regular, painful extractions for use in traditional medicine. Over 12,000 bears remain caged by bile farms in China and Vietnam alone. Jill and Animals Asia’s work also extends to ending the consumption of dogs and cats, and helping the plight of animals in captivity. She has been recognized with numerous awards for her outstanding contribution to animal welfare.
