Animals Asia and their mission to end bear farming, is an issue that is very important to me. I have spent the better part of 7 years working to help raise awareness and funding for this very worthy cause. And now the unthinkable is happening. The director of the Tam Dao National Park in Vietnam, where Animals Asia has their sanctuary, is trying to evict them. It seems that the park director, Mr Tien has been pressuring Animals Asia to relinquish the land since April 2011. It is believed that he intends to hand it over to a stock company, in which his daughter has an investment. Despite the blatant corruption, Mr. Tien's campaign has been so successful that the order to finalize the eviction is currently sitting on the Prime Minister's desk awaiting his signature. So time is of the essence! Please read the information that I've copied below and TAKE ACTION. We need to have the Prime Minister's desk flooded with our emails and letters pressuring him to make the right decision and to honor his commitment to Animals Asia.

      I have seen the bears in cages, in person in Vietnam. It is one of the saddest things I have ever seen. Please save the sanctuary.

      This would be an extremely sad backward step by the Vietnamese authorities. They need to stay committed to protecting their wildlife and environment.
