The Heilongjiang region, bordering Inner Mongolia and Far East Russia, has an extremely rich biodiversity and sits in a cross-border of fresh water and ecological forest zones. It’s also home to the Siberian Tiger, Amur leopard, oriental white stork and red-crowned crane, all of which are highly endangered species.

As one of WWF’s key global protection regions, the Heilongjiang River Basin is also the richest areas in terms of cultural diversity – 51 of China's 56 ethnic groups live here, of which 10 ethnic minorities originate from Heilongjiang river basin, including the Oroqen, Hezhe, Ewenki, Daur and other ethnic minorities.

Our Conservation Efforts
In order to further the Heilongjiang River's biodiversity conservation efforts, the WWF Northeast China Programme Office has achieved some of the following:
  • Construction of a conservation network for the Amur tiger, including a 200,000 ha increase of tiger habitat by establishing new nature reserves (NR); extending existing NRs and constructing eco-corridors; as well as setting up an information-sharing network across northeast China
  • Promotion of tiger friendly forest management, including habitat transformation, reintroduction  of prey, and alternative livelihood development in neighbouring communities
  • Promotion of trans-boundary conservation exchange including international synchronized monitoring, environmental education and information exchange.

WWF established the Northeast China Programme Office (formerly the Changchun Program Office) on May 26, 2006. Our Netherlands, Germany and U.S. offices financially support this office.
