NB! There is also an e-mail you can send to the Prime Minister Mr. Nguyen Tan Dung. Link to the letter:

Prime Minister's e-mail:
Subject: Stop the eviction of Animals Asia's Vietnam bear rescue centre
Write your own letter or use this sample:

Nguyễn Tấn Dũng, Prime Minister
Socialist Republic of Vietnam
Office of the State
1 Bach Thao
Hanoi, Vietnam
Fax: + 845 5464

Dear Honourable Prime Minister,

I write to express my deep concern about the recent attempts to evict Animals Asia and its world-class bear sanctuary from Vietnamís Tam Dao National Park.

I am appalled that this situation has arisen, particularly as the Vietnam government is leading the way in Southeast Asia by working with Animals Asia to end bear bile farming.

The closure would see 104 bears that have been rescued from the bile industry evicted, 77 Vietnamese staff made unemployed, and financial losses to Animals Asia of more than US$2 million. The local economy that depends on the centre would be severely impacted, and the Vietnamese governmentís commitment to ending bear bile farming would be called into question.

I write to ask that you honour your agreement with Animals Asia and support the organisation's right to continue operating its sanctuary.

Please honour your agreement to Animals Asia and stop the eviction.

Yours sincerely,

Signed and noted. They must let these poor abused animals stay in the park sanctuary- it is the least they can do after the poor bears suffered so much at the hands of humans!

I am an Animals Asia donor and member in good standing. I am devastated by this news. I will send an email and circulate this ASAP.

"I support Animals Asia Foundation in their appeal against eviction of their Bear Rescue Centre from Tam Dao National Park and appeal to you as Prime Minister to overturn the Ministry of Defence eviction order. Please honour the original agreement between the Vietnamese government and Animals Asia Foundation and allow the rescue centre to continue operating on its existing site and expand in order to accommodate 200 bears, as originally agreed."
