Li Quan

Founder, Save China's Tigers

Save China’s Tigers is a UK, US and Hong Kong based charity founded in 2000 by Beijing-born Li Quan. The charity’s aim is to raise awareness of the plight of the endangered Chinese tiger and to strive for its protection and preservation through public education, introduction and experimentation of advanced conservation models to China, and raising funds to support these initiatives.

Following an innovative programme of re-wilding Chinese tigers in South Africa, those tigers that have successfully regained hunting skills will be returned to a pilot reserve in China. The first rehabilitated Chinese Tigers are expected to be reintroduced into the wild in China in 2008 to coincide with the hosting of the Beijing Olympic Games.

Li Quan was a Finalist of The Pearl Award for Reverence For Life in 2005.
