Qinghai earthquake

WildChina wishes to send our deepest condolences to the victims of Wednesday morning’s 7.1-magnitude Qinghai earthquake in Yushu (northwestern China, bordering Tibet). Our thoughts are with our local Qinghai partner and his staff as they and their families deal with the aftermaths of this tragedy.

China’s official news service, Xinhua, is currently reporting a death toll of 617, with 313 people missing and 9,110 injured.  A  search and rescue operation is currently underway, with the central government allocating $29.3 million for disaster relief.

WildChina is also taking action: our eco-friendly camping tents used for our signature Tibetan Yushu Horse Festival journey are now being used in Yushu to house earthquake victims. Our team in China will continue to monitor the situation on the ground and provide updates.

  2. Hello there,

    I’m producing a documentary about climate change and I wondered if you or anyone you know might be interested in being a “fixer” – our person on the ground in China to help set up the shoot and be with the director. Any help you might be able to give would be much appreciated.

    Kind Regards,
