The British Consulate-General in Chongqing and the Guizhou Fanjingshan National Nature Reserve co-launched a new book called Xingda’s Wildlife Explorations in Fanjingshan at Guiyang’s No. 1 Experimental Primary School.
This is the first ‘science storybook’ about wildlife in Guizhou for children aged from 9 to 15. Xingda’s Wildlife Explorations in Fanjingshan is a key outcome of the Guizhou Wildlife Preservation Project, which is co-funded by the British Consulate-General in Chongqing and the Guizhou Fanjingshan National Nature Reserve Administration.
The book was written by wildlife experts in China, Britain, America, and Italy, including the Guizhou Fanjingshan National Nature Reserve Administration, Beijing Zoo, the Zoology Society of London, San Diego Zoo, and the University of Torino. The book garnered support from Dr. Jane Goodall, who is a British conservationist and well-known for her ongoing study of chimpanzees in East Africa. She kindly wrote an introduction to the book.
The book also gained the appreciation of the Duke of Cambridge during his visit to China in early March 2015 and the Guizhou Provincial Education Department and Guizhou Provincial Forestry Department. 5,000 copies of the book will be printed, and these will be donated to primary schools in Guiyang via 10 district-level education bureaus and to schools around the Fanjingshan National Nature Reserve.
