Climate

As a result of rapid economic development, 16 of the world’s 20 most polluted cities are now in China. A recent study by China’s Center for Disease Prevention and Control reported that more than 17 provinces in China show heavy air pollution that negatively impacts over 600 million people. Pollution from transportation, city-generated waste, food production, and energy production and usage are elevating China’s exposure to catastrophic habitat destruction, natural resource exhaustion and climate change. 

Though residents in cities such as Beijing are in accord that climate change is a problem, roughly 1 in 3 people still feel that tackling climate change is not their responsibility. A 2013 survey showed that less than 13% of residents were able to name five simple and effective things they could do to help protect the environment. 

With the rise of China’s middle class, younger generations hold the key to China’s climate change future.

Canada

Since 2008, WildAid Canada has been active in building partnerships with business, educators, and governments throughout the country. We are pursuing a variety of initiatives designed to counter the multi-billion dollar illegal international trade in wildlife products and to implement national programs to reduce the human threat to wildlife.
