Overview Of Activities:

Animal Protection Network (Dong Bao Wang) is the first integrated animal protection portal website in China.  Founded in Dec. 2012, it has become a major platform, a virtual classroom and an online home for the people who care about their suffering animal friends and a voice for the voiceless.

China Animal Protection Salon for Journalists: Given the important role the media plays in China and the reality that it’s not animal friendly, Zhang Dan founded the Salon in the country’s capital city of Beijing in July 2009.  The purpose is to address the Chinese media as a whole and encourage them to face and report the reality of large scale serious animal suffering and abuse, and eventually promote legislation.
