Hello guys, I am campaigning for £500 from UK in order to help protect 28 red-crown crane families in North-east China.
There are 28 red-crown crane families live and breeding every year in Weiyuchang, Lindian County, Daqing, Heilongjiang Province, China (黑龙江省大庆市林甸县育苇场) (47.082718, 124.462325). They suffer from egg-picking and animal trapping. Their eggs are picked and sold to business men with £20 each, and their chicks are at risk of taken and trained for animal performance.
Mr FU Jianguo, a ranger, also the local head of forest protection station, started working in 1984, is trying to protect cranes in his spare time. He bought part of the lease from the wetland from the freeholder for one year, forbid egg-picker to enter in order to protect cranes. In the breeding season of 2014, in his lease area, one crane family successfully bread one chick.
After the breeding season (March to June), Mr Fu sublet the land to local fishermen to cover the cost for the lease.
Now Mr Fu wants to buy the entire lease for year 2015 to protect 28 crane families. He is 150,000 CNY(about £15,000) short for the rest lease for year 2015. He wants to borrow £500 from 30 individual for one year. By the end of the term, he wants to pay the money back. There is possible interest paid If there were interests made after subletting the land.
The closing date for buying the lease is 20 November 2014
I found this information on Weibo from a Chinese NGO Nature University. Nature University runs the compaign in China, and so far (7 November 2014), 19 individual have lent the money. 11 individual needed.

We found out the exact location of this wetland, confirmed that international environmental organisations are welcome to donate funds and communicate with Nature University
We want to fundraise £500 to adopt one crane family, hoping that we could make contribution for protecting crane, the symbolic birds for long life, loyal and fortune in Chinese and Japanese culture.
