The Yangtze River flows across China and empties into the East China Sea near the historic city of Shanghai. —Photo by Kevin Arnold
.
The river has great cultural significance and has provided food and livelihoods for millions of people who have lived along its shores for centuries. Unfortunately, this river and others have become a source of carbon neutral electricity. The Conservancy is working with Chinese partners to invest in watershed conservation as well as engaging the hydropower industry to better plan, design, and operate dams in part of their Shared Conservation Agenda: Tackle Climate Change.

Fishing guide and Yurok tribal member, Pergish Carlson, stands atop a tree trunk and looks at the forests around the Klamath River in northern California.
