Our grasslands, forests and rivers are under critical ecological crises.


Join a team of “Shan Shui Conservation Patrons”,

and from now on,

you can provide monthly support to local ecological conservation in China.

We need your participation in protecting our nature.

What dose it mean to be a Shan Shui Conservation Patron?


Who are Shan Shui Conservation Patrons?

Li Xinrui, a local youth  

who was once trained in the military, and strived to make a living in the cities,

has now returned to his hometown Guanba, a habitat of the giant panda.

He joined the anti-poaching patrol team,

developed a local beekeeping cooperative,

and became the backbone of local community-based conservation.

You, can also stand with us.

There are many more nature guardians.

They climb up mountains to set up and maintain camera traps.

They participate in ecosystem and biodiversity surveys.

They help to clear aquatic plants and restore wetlands on weekends.

They repost and spread information about nature conservation…

They are ordinary people, just like you and me.
