Conservation starts only after we begin to understand
At Shangri-La Hotel, Beijing we have the Care for Water Project, which supports wetland conservation and education programmes as well as reducing the hotel's water footprint.
As one of the largest cities in China, Beijing suffers from both drought and water shortage. We hope that through our education and conservation efforts, more people realise the vital need to preserve precious water resources and are inspired to do the same in the their daily lives.
Since it launched in October 2012, the hotel has taken students from schools it works with under Embrace, on an educational tour of Wild Duck Lake. They invited experts to introduce the wetland’s conservation work, especially the migratory birds to the students.
