Over 10,000 bears are currently trapped in torturous cages on bear bile ‘farms’ throughout Asia. But you can help Animals Asia end this cruelty by ditching the razor and setting your follicles free to raise funds for this worthy cause.  

Grow a beard during the month of May and show you care with your facial hair.  Invite friends and family to sponsor you or challenge one of your mates to see who can grow the biggest and best beard.  All you need to do is set up a fundraising page here and share the link.  

Animals Asia was founded in 1998 and the organisation now has award-winning sanctuaries for rescued bears in Chengdu, China and Tam Dao National Park in Vietnam. Animals Asia has rescued more than 600 bears from the horrors of bear bile farming in the two countries. In addition to its End Bear Bile Farming programme, the organisation also works to help animals across Asia through its Captive Animal Welfare and Cat and Dog Welfare programmes.
