Inauguration of Biotope China

Inauguration of Biotope China

Biotope - 2014/04/12

On December 5th, 2014, Biotope will have the honour of celebrating the inauguration of its China affiliate, Fei Lan. Following the Indian Ocean, South America, and North Africa, Biotope now operates in China – a country that ranks 3rd globally for biodiversity, but also faces an array of major environmental challenges in the 21st century.

Biotope is actively engaged with projects in several provinces (Hubei, Henan, Hunan, Fujian, and Liaoning) involving government, the private sector and financial backers such as the French Development Agency.

The projects underway are in a range of fields that deal with sustainable resource use and associated biodiversity, restoration and use of wetlands, developing ecotourism and resilient city planning.
