To celebrate World Water Day, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in China is holding a 10-day photo exhibition, Save the Yangtze, Save our Future in Shanghai.

The exhibition introduces the public to its Yangtze programme, which is supported by the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation.

The Yangtze is the largest river in China, flowing through 11 provinces and accounting for more than 40 per cent of China's freshwater supply. But rapid development in the past decade has taken its toll on the Yangtze.

WWF China hopes to restore the balance between people and nature around the central Yangtze region by 2025.

Hong Kong students can visit www.wwfchina.org to learn more about the project.
