Chinese philanthropist He Qiaonv has announced the largest-ever philanthropic commitment to wildlife conservation.

Her pledge, totalling $1.5 billion over seven years, will go towards establishing and maintaining wildlife reserves and conservation parks in partnership with the Chinese government.

It will also involve a $20 million partnership with Panthera, a leading international wildcat conservation organization. The gift reflects a renewed commitment to wildlife restoration and conservation efforts among China’s philanthropists.

It also reflects policy changes that are increasing public-private partnerships and therefore charitable giving in China.
