Kathy Lally in The Washington Post:
Beijing-based environment correspondent for The GuardianJonathan Watts was there, and had this to say:
There is one Chinese organization fighting for tigers: Save China's Tigers, run by former Gucci executive Li Quan. One of the organization's main activities is 'rewilding' tigers or training zoo-kept tigers for re-introduction into the wild. The training is currently taking place in South Africa.

Classic Danwei posts
+ Korean history doesn't fly on Chinese TV screens (2007.09): SARFT puts the kibbosh on Korean historical dramas.
+ Religion and government in an uneasy mix (2008.03): Phoenix Weekly (凤凰周刊) article from October, 2007, on government influence on religious practice in Tibet.
+ David Moser on Mao impersonators (2004.10): I first became aware of this phenomenon in 1992 when I turned on a Beijing TV variety show and was jolted by the sight of "Mao Zedong" and "Zhou Enlai" playing a game of ping pong. They both gave short, rousing speeches, and then were reverently interviewed by the emcee, who thanked them profusely for taking time off from their governmental duties to appear on the show.
