The 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 15) to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) could be held in October 2020 in Yunnan, China.
Yunnan is not only the province with richest biodiversity in China, but also one of the 34 biodiversity hotspots in the world. In order to record and present the precious biodiversity resources in Southwest China, as well as to raise public awareness of primordial forest ecosystem, Greenpeace Beijing Office, in cooperation with a wildlife photography institution “Wild China”, spent 2 years on searching and taking a life-size photo of the world’s oldest Himalaya Hemlock. It is also the first publicity life-size photo of giant ancient trees in mainland China.

During the investigation, Greenpeace also found an 82-year-old forest ranger, Yang Shiqiang, who was the first local woodlands staff to discover the thousand-year-old Himalaya Hemlock. In early 1960s, Yang started to work in Caojian Woodland, Yunlong County, Dali. He sees the change in social demand for tree resources within these years: from extensive to intensive development model. People began to realize the importance of environmental and ecological protection and take efforts to guard the precious primordial forest in their homeland.

82岁高龄老护林员独白 
2020年联合国《生物多样性公约》第十五次缔约方大会的会议地点确定为中国的云南省。云南省不仅是中国生物多样性最为丰富的省份,也是全球仅有的34个生物多样性热点地区之一。为了记录和展示中国西南地区生物多样性的珍贵资源,提高公众对原始森林系统的认知与关注,绿色和平北京办公室与知名自然影像机构野性中国,通过2年时间的努力,成功拍下了世界上最古老的云南铁杉树等身照——这也是中国大陆首张公开传播的巨型古树等身照摄影作品。

在调查的过程中,我们还找到了一位82岁的老护林员,杨世强,他就是最早发现了千年云南铁杉树的当地林场工作人员。1960年代初,杨师强进入大理州云龙县漕涧林场,他亲历了不同历史发展时代,人们对树木资源与社会需求的变化。从粗放型开发、集约型利用、再到人人都意识到生态保护的重要性,要守住家门口珍贵的原始森林宝库。
