WildChina > WildChina Explorer Grant > And the winner of our 2013 WildChina Explorer Grant is…


It was no easy task, but after much deliberation our judges chose this applicant and his journey to study the Tianshan Snow Lotus in Xinjiang’s Uighur Autonomous Region. An avid adventurer whose personal journeys have taken him all over western China and Tibet, Heli is currently a graduate student at Beijing’s Forestry University.

In addition to receiving WildChina’s 2013 Explorer Grant, Heli will be outfitted head to toe in gear provided by WildChina Explorer Grant sponsor The North Face. Our judges were particularly intrigued by Heli’s destination–remote, unexplored, and completely off the beaten path–and inspired by his genuine life-long interest in the Snow Lotus. Heli’s journey will not only push the boundaries for exploration, but will bring attention to the crucial issue of environmental protection.

We received some fantastic video submissions this year–our judges were impressed with the creativity and passion for exploration demonstrated and had a hard time reaching consensus. In recognition of this, we also have a runner-up this year, Zhao Jiang Bo who will receive a portion of the grant to support the furtherance of his bird research in Yunnan. We thank all our followers for their enthusiastic participation and hope everyone had as much fun with the contest as we did.
