DAY 266: A FLASH OF INSPIRATION FROM ANIMALS ASIA
Last night I went to see a film by the incredible Animals Asia about bear bile farming. They do more work than almost anyone to end some of the horrendous animal welfare abuses in one of the worst places in the world to be an animal. It reminded me we all need inspiration from time to time. Read more about the horrendous bear bile industry here
I met the legendary found, Jill Robinson – sweet and humble despite being recently voted one of the 50 most powerful women in China (yes, she’s a Brit). Everyone said I need to go to China otherwise I’d be missing the biggest welfare issue of our generation. Yes but I’m white and 6’4″ with no Cantonese/Mandarin etc etc. Jill suggested I go and I’ll email her. How on earth I get access I simply do not know but I’d jump at the chance.
I haven’t forgotten about the badger cull but for now the shooting has not started. The government is no doubt waiting for the protesters to take their eye off the ball. They have a window of a few months and could start at any time. I’ll keep you posted.
