I was born in Shandong Province, located in eastern part of China and known as hometown of Confucius. Soon after getting my bachelor degree of Landscape Design in 2009, I progressed to a Masters study in Science of Nature Conservation in Beijing Forestry University (BFU). During this three year period, I participated in a variety of conservation research and practice onbiodiversity conservation, endangered species monitoring, habitat managementand conservation action planning. This experience brought me to the Wildlife Institute, BFU in September 2012, where I had the chance to get involved in felid conservation. The project I am currently participating in is ‘Monitoring and Assessment of Indochinese Tigers in China’.
I am interested in conservation of endangered species especially wild felids, and animal welfare under captured conditions. In attending the diploma course, I wish to learn systemicknowledge and theory inresearch design, technical and practical skills in data collection and analysis, scientific writing skills and to gain new research ideas. I hope to prepare myself to be an excellent wildlife conservationist and contribute more to this wonderful field.
