The story behind the CD
In early 2013 Animals Asia invited UK supporters to submit their original poem about the Moon Bears.
The poems could be joyful, hopeful, passionate, powerful, funny or sad; Animals Asia were open to all your expressions of creativity and feelings about these beautiful and brave bears.
They were overwhelmed by the response in both the adult and young people categories. So it was quite a challenge to pick the three top entries in each category for the judges, Jill Robinson MBE, Rula Lenska, Peter Egan and William Hartston (the opera and poetry editor of the Daily Express). After much debate the winners were chosen and announced at the Animals Asia 20th Anniversary Gala dinner in June 2013.
The winning entries describe the brutal cruelty suffered by the bears and express hopes for a future when all moon bears will free. These videos of Rula and Peter reading poems by AA supporters Caroline Herd and Gill West display this beautifully.
We helped Animals Asia produce a limited edition CD featuring the winning entries plus a poem written and read by their patron Virginia McKenna OBE and Rula Lenska’s own heartfelt poem. Buy the CD >>
