Jill Robinson
Founder and CEO @Animals Asia
Born in the UK, Jill arrived in Hong Kong in 1985 and spent 12 years working in Asia as a consultant for the International Fund for Animal Welfare. Repeatedly faced with scenes of widespread animal cruelty, she decided to introduce the concept of “animal welfare through people welfare.” Jill founded Animals Asia in 1998 – 5 years after an encounter with a caged bear on a farm in southern China changed her life forever. Learning that bear bile could be replaced by herbs, she vowed to put an end to bear bile farming. Since then, Animals Asia has rescued over 600 bears in China & Vietnam. She works with the vet and bear teams during rescues, assists with health checks and advises closely on construction projects. She shares her home in Hong Kong with her family of rescued dogs, cats and a tortoise.
