China and polar conservation
China is emerging as a key player in the polar regions, which are also increasingly important to the global environment. To promote a better understanding of China’s strategy and a more responsible role for China in the governance of the polar regions, WildBound and other organizations are building a cross-sector network that actively works on policy, research, and public outreach.
China Polar Conservation Network
WildBound is a cofounder of the China Polar Conservation Network, alongside Greenovation Hub, World Wildlife Fund, Homeward Bound, Greenpeace, and SEE Foundation. The Network aims to exchange research, advise China’s polar policy, collectively promote the conservation of polar regions, and to organize public educational events.
