Photo ex­hi­bi­tion ap­peals for an­i­mal pro­tec­tion

Changjiang Weekly - - CONTENTS - By Sue Liu

Jiang's works are on view at the "Love for Wildlife" photo ex­hi­bi­tion at Wuhan Tiandi. The pho­tos cap­ture wild an­i­mals in Africa.

Jiang shared her travel ex­pe­ri­ences on that con­ti­nent, say­ing that she cher­ished the time she spent there. She has vis­ited Africa many times be­cause of her role as a WildAid am­bas­sador for rhi­nos. WildAid has a global net­work and fo­cuses on re­duc­ing the de­mand for wildlife prod­ucts. Jiang had the chance to see the world's last male north­ern white rhino named Su­dan, which af­fected her deeply. "I was driv­ing on the 3rd Ring Road in Bei­jing when I heard about Su­dan's death, I couldn't stop cry­ing." Jiang said this in­ci­dent made her aware of the risk of ex­tinc­tion due to the il­le­gal wildlife trade.

Nick Wit­ting­ham, the Con­sul Gen­eral of the Bri­tish Gen­eral Con­sulate Wuhan said that an in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence on the il­le­gal wildlife trade will be held in Lon­don on Oc­to­ber 11 and 12. Tak­ing that oc­ca­sion, he hopes to pro­mote co­op­er­a­tion on endangered an­i­mals pro­tec­tion be­tween China and the U.K.

The photo ex­hi­bi­tion is free and will last un­til Septem­ber 27.
