About Us

Cloud Mountain Conservation

Cloud Mountain Conservation, with the official name of Dali Biodiversity Conservation and Research Center, was founded in 2015 by a group of zoologists, wildlife photographers, nature educators, and experienced conservationists.
 
Our team advocates science, cooperation, trust and sustainability.
 
In local communities, we encourage public engagement and promote sustainable development through scientific education. In the field, we study and protect flagship wildlife species such as gibbons to preserve the vast biodiversity of the pristine forests in southwest China.
