Animals Asia is rescuing eight more moon bears from bile farms around Vietnam’s Quang Ninh province this week.

The rescue will be over two days, starting tomorrow (Wednesday), and it cannot come soon enough for these long abused animals. These eight bears are on seven separate farms, and all except one will need to be anaesthetised for the trip back to our sanctuary near Hanoi.

This week’s rescue means just one bear will remain caged on a farm in the whole of Quang Ninh province. The provincial authorities agreed to free all its bile bears earlier this year. We will rescue this last bear from Uong Bi District later in the month.

This rescue brings to 32 the total number of bears rescued from the province so far this year

UPDATE-Fri, 30 Oct 2015

We’re thrilled to be rescuing the very last bear from Quang Ninh – the Vietnamese province that housed the notorious Halong Bay bile farms. Thank you. You made this happen!

And you can join us to cheer on our team as they bring home this sad and frightened bear. For our live coverage, go to our website – and please share on Facebook.

It’s taken eight years of intense campaigning, lobbying and public education… but we got there in the end. And you, our amazing supporters, have been there every step of the way. This will be the 33rd bear we’ve rescued from the province this year, each one of them utterly desperate for help.

Please stay with us as we mend these broken bears and go on to give them the lives they so deserve.
