One of the charities I volunteer with and support, Animals Asia, needs your help. Their Vietnam Bear Rescue Center faces eviction from Tam Dao National Park, following an aggressive campaign by the park director, Do Dinh Tien. 104 rescued bile farm bears and 77 staff face unfair eviction from the rescue center after a malicious campaign by the park director, who Animals Asia believes wants to profit from the land.
Eviction would have severe physical and mental implications for the bears, forcing them back into cages for as long as two years while a new site was found and a sanctuary built in another province. Animals Asia signed an agreement in 2005 with the Vietnam government to build the sanctuary and has since invested over US$2m in capital expenditure and $2.3m in operational costs.
