By now, you know that an earthquake of catastrophic proportion hit China’s southwestern Sichuan province a few weeks ago. But did you know that four of China’s most cherished World Heritage sites were affected, too? One very important site is the Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuaries, home to 30% of the world’s remaining endangered giant pandas.
Aid teams working in the area need help to be most effective in their efforts to save the pandas and restore access to the sites. Check out the online campaign that Friends of World Heritage, a grassroots initiative created by the United Nations Foundation with Expedia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXPE) and UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre, has created to raise awareness and funds to help.
