Event description

Description

Please join us in Hong Kong on Sunday, September 8 for Animals Asia's first live speaking event, Speaking of Animals.

Think 'TED Talks'. Or maybe 'TEDDY Talks' is more apt!

You'll hear from the very best in their fields, including our own founder and CEO, Jill Robinson, who's recognized as the world's leading expert on moon bears.

And in the afternoon, come with us on a relaxing, but equally educational, visit to Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden.

Join us for the full day or for the morning talks only...either way, we'd love to see you on the day.

At Speaking of Animals, our senior sanctuary staff - vets and bear carers - will share some fascinating insights into what it takes to care such large groups of intelligent, wild animals, And other staff will talk about our wider work, including elephant welfare in Vietnam and cat and dog welfare in China

Animal warriors from other organizations will also share their experiences.
