Animals Asia is a progressive, dynamic and global organisation making great advances in animal welfare predominantly in China and Vietnam, but with reach across Asia.
Founded in 1998, Animals Asia promotes compassion and respect for all animals and works to bring about long-term change. We work to end the barbaric bear-bile trade, which sees over 10,000 bears kept on bile farms in China, and, according to official figures, about 1,200 suffering the same fate in Vietnam. Animals Asia has rescued over 500 bears, caring for them at its award-winning bear sanctuaries in China and Vietnam. This year, the Vietnamese Government announced its partnership with Animals Asia to bring this to an end by 2022 and we are now working on the exit strategy.
Animals Asia also works to end the trade in dogs and cats for food in China and Vietnam, and lobbies to improve the welfare of companion animals, promote humane population management and prevent the cross border export of "meat dogs" in Asia.
In addition, Animals Asia campaigns for an end to abusive animal practices in zoos and safari parks in Asia, and works closely with governing authorities to improve animal management and increase awareness of the welfare needs of captive animals.
There has never been a more exciting time to join the team and be part of this historic journey. If you are looking for a career move that will enable you to play a key role in creating significant, lasting change you will be excited about working here.
