|Max WiFi are involved specifically in Animals Asia’s Moon Bear Rescue Program. Moon bears (Asiatic Black Bears) inhabit the forests of China, Vietnam and Korea. They are critically endangered and are captured in the wild and taken to Bile Farms where they remain for some 20 years trapped in a cage and farmed for their bile which is considered “useful” in Chinese medicine. There are 54 herbal substitutes to bear bile and this alone makes the trade wholly unnecessary before we even begin to consider the ethics behind caging a living creature in torture for year upon year.|
|Animals Asia was founded by Jill Robinson in 1998. She worked in Hong Kong and quickly became aware of the distressing mistreatment of animals throughout Asia.
As a result she chose to dedicate her life to improving the welfare of Asian animals and now has support groups throughout the world working around the clock to raise awareness and to provide the essential funds needed to rescue and to educate.
|The charity now boasts two sanctuaries (one in China and one in Vietnam) where rescued bears can spend the rest of their lives and Max WiFi have donated funds to help buy a long awaited freezer for the Vietnamese sanctuary. Both directors have also taken on various sponsored events to raise funds for much needed medicine and post operative care for the bears.|
