A group of professionals from several Chinese mainstream media outlets visited the renowned Wild Elephant Valley scenic spot in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan province, on April 15. The visit is part of a recent event aiming to explore China along highways, and the Wild Elephant Valley is situated near Sixiao highway, the only highway in China that cuts through rainforests.

The media tour came to the Asian elephant breeding and rescue center, an institute dedicated to researching the captive breeding of wild elephants, as well as rescuing and housing those in need, and also maintaining the population numbers of the rare species. Members of the media group experienced the process of feeding, training and checking the health of baby elephants.
