  The Training Camp has invited Mr. Xi Zhinong, a well-known wildlife photographer, and Mr. Xu Renxiu, chairman of Taiwan Wilderness Association, as major lecturers. About 50 professional and amateur photographers, from Beijing, Shanghai, Taiwan, Kunming, Xinhua News Agency, and Beijing Daily, took part in the training course.




  China has some of the richest biodiversity in the world. However, images of some rare, endangered and extinct species are relatively lacked. While improving the level of ecological photographing, the photographers are to contribute to environmental protection through the power of images.


“Photos can help people know the living conditions of wildlife and inspire them to make their best efforts to protect it”, says Xi Zhinong, a wildlife photographer who has been calling for the harmony between man and nature.
