Animal rights activist no stranger to confrontation

Longtime Vancouver activist Anthony Marr is no stranger to going head-to-head with Chinese culture to protect endangered animals.

In 1995, Marr organized a media tour through Vancouver�s Chinatown apothecaries, pointing out where tiger bone, bear gallbladders and rhino horns were being used in traditional Chinese medicine.

Born in China�s Guangdong province, Marr and his family fled to Hong Kong when he was five, then to Canada, when he was 20, where he studied physics and geology at the University of B.C.
