stop the government from evicting rescued bears

  • By: SARA MCINTOSH
  • Target: The honerable prime minister of vietman

Please join Animals Asia in asking the Prime Minister of Vietnam to stop the unjust eviction of Animals Asia's Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre in Tam Dao National Park.

The sanctuary is home to 104 bears that have been rescued from a life of torture on bear bile farms. A relocation would have devastating effects on the welfare of the bears - mentally and physically.

Sign this petition and urge the Prime Minister to honour his government's original agreement with Animals Asia and allow the rescue centre to remain in Tam Dao National Park.

Dear Honourable Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung,


I write to express my concern that Animals Asia's world-class bear sanctuary is to be evicted from Tam Dao National Park by the Ministry of Defence.


The eviction is in direct violation of the Vietnam government's agreement with Animals Asia, to develop a rescue centre on 12 hectares of the park that would permanently rehabilitate and house 200 endangered bears rescued from the illegal bear bile industry.


The closure would see 104 rescued bears evicted, 77 Vietnamese staff made unemployed, and financial losses to Animals Asia of more than US$2 million.


Please overturn the decision to evict Animals Asia and honour your government's agreement.


Yours sincerely,

Sign Petition
