Protecting our natural resources through livelihood support
At Golden Flower Hotel, Xian, we have the Care for Nature project, which aims to preserve valuable habitats of species such as the panda and the golden monkey through the upgrade and maintenance of patrolling facilities. Moreover local communities are encouraged to adopt alternative livelihoods, such as planting traditional Chinese medicines instead of collecting them in the wild, with a hope of reducing the pressure of human activity on the nature reserve.
The hotel has started upgrading the ranger facilities by providing more appropriate uniforms for them. They will also set up a bee farm for the villagers to focus on and generate income from.
