Photo exhibition appeals for animal protection
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.
